Thank you for the explanation, I was thinking it would go into that direction.
Btw the whole covid/protest issue could be a cataclyst to enforce just that, true identification for online posting and being held accountable for what is posted. In my Dumbass opinion.
This is what I thought while reading your 2nd paragraph. Just another try to link the username and real name closer together.
Even worse, I say soon voices begin to appear to ask for universal identification. It is draconian how they sell it:
"Your right to identify (nice spin) is violated. You are reliable on the government to issue ID about yourself. Here, take this wireless chip and let us inject it into your palm, so you can finally be freed from tyranny."
What they leave out is that you still will not be able to produce ID, because who will be responsible for issuing it? Right, the government, or even worse, a government paid private company.
