Blizzard: Thou Shalt Be Anonymous No Longer - PCWorld

Blizzard: Thou Shalt Be Anonymous No Longer - PCWorldBlizzard's approach to handling trolls and cyberharassment is to make sure that everyone is identified on their network. A good initial approach, but not perfect. While I think Blizzard has been doing a very good job addressing harassment and trolls on their networks, by requiring everyone to identify with their true identity (if tied to a paid account), there is no longer anonymity for people who enjoy gaming and not bothering anyone else. There is a lot more here, but wanted to post it to make sure everyone esees it, before I have a chance to comment in detail.
