    How do you feel abour your real name being revealed online?

    [Stemming from the thread about Blizzard using everyone's real-life names]

    The poll is multi-faceted with 3 questions - don't get confused, read carefully:

    A) If the government required you to use your real name online - would you be online as much as you are now?

    1 = yes,
    2 = no
    3 = maybe

    B) If a forum that you frequent for FREE (IE: not purchasing a related product for access, not ever donating or paying membership of some type) required that you use your real name - would you use the forum?

    4 = yes
    5 = no
    6 = maybe

    C) If a forum that you frequented as a CUSTOMER (IE: purchasing a related product for access, donating and paying a membership or access fee of some type) required that you use your real-name would you use the forum?

    7 = yes
    8 = no
    9 = maybe

    Option 10) Otherific! For all the otherer options I couldn't worm in.

    No, no, no.

    Being required is what makes me say no.

    BTW Winston is my real name.

    I would pay to belong to the site, but have no intention of using my real name online.

    Re: How do you feel abour your real name being revealed online?

    I hate when my real name is revealed online.

    Here in Germany, it is legal for people to gather names from mailboxes and put the name, phone number etc in directories, including online ones.

    I had a situation where an old 'friend' showed up on my door step, after getting my name, address, phone, number and a map to my house from from an online directory. Digusting!

    I think, there are going to be privacy laws made, concerning things like this in Germany, but they are not there yet.

    I would also hate if somebody who knows me, put my real name on the internet someplace. Hopefully, nobody will be so inconsiderate of my privacy.

    2 - I would hardly ever be online.



    5 - No I wouldnt. Not if there were other sites which give the option not to, and not if they expected my real name to be on display to everybody, rather than kept in a private file.



    8 - I would certainly be reluctant about using the forum, but would certainly not use it, if there was a site offering a more private service.

    My Dad did that - alot - revealed personal details about my family and me (he's a minister- would always write family-updates online for church members to read). . .I had to get onto him all the time and eventually I just told the Church Secretary that if she permitted it again I'd take them to court (yeah - it pissed me off that badly).

    I have to cowtow to OPSEC (Operational Security) and I can't permit other people to violate it all willy nilly without concern for what could possibly go wrong for my family.

    It's like nails on a chalkboard.
