Nethaera just announced a U-turn on the issue of forcing customers to reveal real names in order to post on the forums.
Thanks to TAGN and Kotaku* for the heads up.
Good job, well done everyone! And fuck you Kotick.
There's still no way I will ever play a Blizzard game where my real name is on the account.
* no link available right now for Kotaku - their web page is too busy!
