Players of MMORPG leviathan World of Warcraft are putting Blizzard games in their collective doghouse over a proposed plan to require real names for chat purposes. Those black gummy globules you see washing up on Texas/Mexican Gulf coast aren't from the oil spill. Thats the **** hitting the fan from the fallout from this proposal. MMORPGeez Loueeez

Back when I was playing Everquest I had hear rumors of something like this. Nothing shakes malcontents out of the woodwork faster than threatening their anonymity. A large segment of MMORPG players play these games for just this reason. Threatening privacy is a can of worms best not opened. If a legislator is pushing this, or is being pushed into this, than that legislator has to show some cajones to his "constituency" or be voted out by people who aren't. 2 cents submitted.

It only took Blizzard three days to fold under pressure. A shame, really. That would have been a very interesting social experiment, to see how all those kids would do with responsibility. It would also be interesting to evaluate the number of real-world crimes committed because of it, to show the extent to which anonymity is important.

I guess whoever has their collective fist up Google and YouTube's *** can't grow a third fist to cram up Blizzard's collective ***. Not enough fists to cram. I guess it takes too much effort to take out one fist, cram up someone else's ***, pull it back out and cram it back up the *** it was previously in.
