This has been a huge issue before when Blizzard tried requiring people to use their real name to play games online. They changed their mind, in part after users published the names, addresses and phone numbers of Blizzard employees online.
The Miami Herald recently added a "real name only" comment system requiring facebook (which isn't really "not anonymous", since anyone can make a facebook acct and use any name they want for it). The Post has an editorial suggesting they, and all other media, do the same.
Would people still participate online if they had to use their real name? Would sites like CM die overnight (hell, we can't even get trolls to use their fake, made up user name)?Answer Question

I'm sure younger people would because they are more comfortable with the whole social networking, put all your business online era we are in. I wouldn't use my real name.
