[23:15] <@SpeedRcrX> So Blizzard wants all the people on its forums to have their REAL NAMES linked to everything posted.
[23:15] <@SpeedRcrX> Real smart, guys.
[23:16] <@SpeedRcrX> Real smart.
[23:16] <@SpeedRcrX> Read the comments for all the problems this idiot idea has that I can't even waste my breath explaining.
[23:16] <FireFly_9> It's a cost-saving measure.
[23:17] <FireFly_9> This way the forums will wither and die as users leave for anonymous third-party solutions, and Blizzard no longer has to pay for their bandwidth, staff, or server resources.
[23:17] <@SpeedRcrX> Oh it's something all right.

AND THE FANDOM REJOICES... They're not doing it!

Internet backlash works wonders doesn't it?

Looks like Blizzard have taken the rather massive hint from the forums and abandoned the idea. Thankfully.

Jesus Christ, has Blizzard been hitting the stupid juice again?

Hmmm... the original announcement thread on the official forums, in just over 24 hours, has surpassed 24,600 posts, nearly all negative...

Yeah, this is easily the biggest Bad Idea in gaming history, if Blizzard is stupid enough to go through with it.
