BLIZZARD of dissent opt out of online identity mandate

Due to "Real ID", BLIZZARD's online identity mandate for gamers, online trolls can find users and harass them at home. Consumer complaints over privacy and online identity has escalated since the online identity application became mandatory. Some consumers are dumping the online gaming service altogether.

If the level of dissent displayed against Blizzard is any example of how online communities respond to Internet identity mandates, expressing complaints now might create a difference in national Cyber Security and the White House's new plan for a national online ID number.
