Official Blue Post

All Blizzard forums (initially Starcraft 2, then World of Warcraft) will show your full name, first and last, next to every forum post.

Discuss.

In related news, WoW general forum flooded with straight-up Blizzard hate :) Refresh that page every 5 seconds and watch how many threads get deleted each time... Entertainment!

Hahahaha. That's complete invasion of privacy if you ask me :\ They have a reason to hate. That's why I don't go on forums with too huge of a community. The regulars is why I usually have fun on forums ^^;
