    I doubt it. Security has been blizzards priority for a long time, so they would not screw up like that.

    They posted on their forums that they will do that, but as I read somewhere on their forums, Canadian News spoke about that on TV about that, and their government might stop Blizzard to do that.

    In my Opinion, the RealID isn't bad at all! Shouldn't Internet made to get us all more near each other? I think we should be spoken with our real names, which I believe in the future there will be more security over internet therefore I bet we can use our name like in everything, like if we going to leave house to buy some grocerys we will use our name, wont use Kaskame IRL why don't we use our RL name in internet?

    In other way, I don't agree because of the privacy and the constant abuse of fake names like celebrities.. It is very good idea imo, but not at this stage of the community / people mind, we just selfish motherfuckers (no offense), with no capacity to work together..

    Anyways, one thing I'd like to see in internet in the future is that we could have a single account for everything, games, jobs, social websites, forums, news whatever..and when we want to post something we just had to write, no signups! Therefore there should be "jails" online, people status, etc etc... I might get over-fantasy, but I think it would be better.
