    Enjoyed the show! Especially Brian/Breanni’s segment! Yay Warcraftpets!

    One thing I strongly feel you should have touched more on regarding the Real ID Situation is how it has the potential to be a real safety liability issue. Sure, the whole account security flaw question will make most players squirm a bit. And yeah, forum accountability might suppress honest opinions. But as a female WoW player and stalking victim, the idea of having my real name attached to game forum posts was an absolute outrage. If you think my unfortunate experience is uncommon, think again. There are a lot of crazies in the world who delight at the prospect of having just such an avalanche of personal information cascading down their browser window. I love your show, but your perspective on this particular issue was diluted and conspicuously um… male.

    I’d hazard a guess there were no women in attendance at the Battle.net meeting where the Real ID forum decision was made. Had there been, that idea would never have left the room.

      Hello Drrum!

      First off, thanks for the compliment – we appreciate it.

      But more importantly, we do admit that our perspective on the RealID issue is mainly from a security standpoint. As you say, our perspective on the issue is conspicuously male. But we also realize that we can’t approach all issues from all directions. Personal information leaks and privacy issues are important to us as well – and I’m sorry to hear that you went through such a insane and scary ordeal. I promise that we will address this in length on our next episode, because the privacy issue is just as important (if not MORE important) as the data security issue.

      Thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. It’s definitely something we need to get out there so people know about it.

      Gillrisper
