Blizzard may be able to keep PR within it's own group of players, but lets see them explain this to the gaming world. http://digg.com/gaming_news/Official_forum_changes_real_life_names_to_be_displayed

Jul 6th 2010 2:42PM Quite possibly one of the worst privacy issues in gaming history. I completely agree that trolls are despicable, but trolling in a games forums is a minor issue when it comes to the major damage that can be done in real life. While there are people with common names, foreigners, like myself, have to deal with people finding me via google now, as I'm the only result with my name.
People play games for escapism, I am curious as to who thought this was a good idea.
