They didnt go through with this. Blizz decided against putting personal information on such posts. I cant find the post but I remember reading it on the WoW forums that they decided against it. If you want to see it I can try to dig it up again for ya.

Yep, Real ID was canceled. But, they have a warning on the forums, if you are acting stupid you get turned into the local authorities for 'final disposition'. :( Don't be acting stupid during Cataclysm.

So if I were to "act up" on Cataclysm (I play on US Servers, living in Germany) they are going to try to send the German Polizei after me? LOL I think the polizei would laugh at them hahaha

I can't determine whether you're 13 years old or clinically insane.

What, you can't be both?

Your real ID is only given to people who you have on your real ID friends list, and to get on someone's real ID list you need to physically give them your e-mail address. Basically, your post is a nonissue.

A lot of what cybertext says is a non issue. You just have to chalk it up to the nonsensical ramblings of a person with the mind of a 13 year old.

Blizzard could hire a PR firm to make fake names to post that RealID is good, and giving out your personal information online is good, but you need to ask authorities, teachers, friends that have been out personal information on the Internet WILL cause major problems.

Wait, so the perceived problem here is that your kid might violate the law and be forced to face consequences as a result? Your posts are pretty unclear about what the problem is.
Even if your communication is online, you're not talking at a bunch of letters on a screen or numbers in a machine; there is a real human being on the other side. Kids, in particular, need to learn that. If they're intelligent enough not to say something to someone in person because the person might respond violently, then there isn't any context where it's suddenly okay to say whatever it is. It's that simple.
That said, people do overreact, and the Internet is just another venue for that. This is a risk that everyone runs any time they interact with other human beings. Just treat people with respect, don't be a jerk, and there's really not much else you can do. Sounds like a solid life lesson for the kiddo.

Original poster, your brain was the egg frying in the excessive fatty juices of stupidity, yes you are on drugs...and for those who think their information is "safe", think again, if you connect to the internet all your converted private information was taken many moons ago.

How do you think I can pay $5-$25 to get all the information on anyone I wish to. Don't believe me, go check yourself. The privacy of your sensitive information, is a figment of your imagination, much like your belief that we live in the land of the free.

Spoon fed media brainwashed your decision making long ago. If this is the most advanced country in the world, then ask yourself why health care is not a right and connected to your employment status? Who has the best health care? Those who are young, healthy, and don't need it.

Stop thinking in the mindset that you are the army of one and realize we are a community and the power of the people comes from the strength and understanding that we are one piece of the picture that makes our community, help others more than you help yourself and know that what you have is not as a result of your hard work, but the place in society you were born.

The higher up the social ladder you are, the more responsibility you have to help those less fortunate than yourself.

Okay, this post was pre-Cataclysm. It made now sense what Blizzard did, tightening up their language on harrassment, if they still allowed harassment in the game with ninja looting. The whole game is about harrassment, pvp, etc. But, now that they are selling the game to 8yr olds with pokemon and panda, it all makes sense now. They want a child friendly game. /RUN!!!

No, the actual reason was Ghostcrawler was getting death threats (it's why he wasn't posting on the forums -- and why the death threat notice on the forums for months). On the blog he posted some rules for him to go back to post on the forums, even. But despite the rules in place, the trolls remain and those who spent many months offering suggestions and more are permanently banned. The Blizzard WoW forum is now a fanboi site, and with the help of MMO-Champion (and it's odd moderation rules -- a moderator there even posted about playing on private servers -_-) is about hype. The problem with it all -- the addon sites like Curse to Wowhead -- is they need to suck the teet to make money. They are not going criticize the hand that feeds them, which in turn creates a market of hype sells, not actual quality.

Cybertext, let me get this straight...
Basically, you raised your kid to be a jerk, and don't want him to deal with the consequences of being a jerk? You, also don't like when society gives him consequences for being the jerk you're bringing him up to be.

This is what you sound like:
Cybertext: "Oh yeah, my kid smashed your car window, but he shouldn't be punished & I shouldn't pay for your car window. No, I don't want to be bothered. I work everyday."

Now, mind you before you even install this game, Blizzard, and most online gaming companies with multiplying features, will inform you that jerk type behavior is not allowed, and the consequences are usually a bann-hammer. Oh wait, jerk don't read TOUs, they just make fake "lawyer" posts to moderators.

Do you think it's okay for your child to insult people in person, over the phone, or through an email? Do you realize that real people play this game? Some are relaxing from a day of work or school... or HEY, raising kids. What makes your kid special that he can just anonymously insult people because you raised him to be an inhumane jerk? People suffer the consequences of crimes and rude acts on a constant basis. Why should your child be allowed to do as he pleases to others?
