Blizzard caves in to cry babies, drops REAL ID idea

Some may have hated it but I looked forward to a board where things that were posted were useful and contained information. Not so much anymore. Threatened by tons of level 80 human paladins and shitty resto druids that promised to "stop raiding" Blizzard execs pulled the plug on the REAL ID concoction that they were cooking up.

Mike Morhaime was quoted as typing:
"I'd like to take some time to speak with all of you regarding our desire to make the Blizzard forums a better place for players to discuss our games. We've been constantly monitoring the feedback you've given us, as well as internally discussing your concerns about the use of real names on our forums. As a result of those discussions, we've decided at this time that real names will not be required for posting on official Blizzard forums."

Ah well, back to Elitist Jerks boards. A place that is moderated and kept under strict supervision. They don't even get paid over there either. Amazing.
