Submission + - Blizzard to Remove Privacy on Forums (battle.net)

An anonymous reader writes: Blizzard Entertainment will be requiring real First and Last names to post on their forums:

"The first and most significant change is that in the near future, anyone posting or replying to a post on official Blizzard forums will be doing so using their Real ID — that is, their real-life first and last name — with the option to also display the name of their primary in-game character alongside it."

Concerns over privacy, stalking, and data-mining abound
