Besides, what's so bad to give out your name? How many people use Credit Cards and there are so many other things were you have to give out
People are just overly paranoid these days and think everything is bad and evil

Here is what's so bad...
One of the Dev's or the "blue" posters, posted his Real Name, in somewhat of a show of good faith to the WoW community...
Within MINUTES, people had his home address, phone numbers, the school he went to, his mothers name, his email accounts, and more all posted on the
forum for the world to see. The posters literally crucified this person on the forums.
THAT is a problem!
I know it's only a game, but some people take it WAY to seriously...Imagine you piss someone off in the game and they get mad over it, like over the
top mad. They get your real name, they google you, find your house, or where you work and show up and harass you...or worse.
Does anyone really want to deal with that? I know it's a stretch, but it's a very real possibility.
This is a horrible idea and if Blizzard implements this, I can't see it ending well.
