Well played, trolls, well played.

Blizzard officially backed down on using real names in their forums today. Congratulations, trolls, you can now go back to calling everyone niggers, fags, kikes, and chinks without fear of anyone in your life knowing what a prick you really are.

Yes, I play World of Warcraft. No, I don't plan on buying Starcraft II. (Not a fan of RTS games.) Yes, I do plan on buying Diablo 3. Yes, I do use Real ID in WoW now. Yes, I own stock in Activision-Blizzard. (Why would you not, if you give them so much money?) No, I do not agree with everything they do.

Blizzard has begun a new "thing" in World of Warcraft (and soon Starcraft II) that requires you to use your real first and last name to "friend" people cross-game, or so that you can always chat with your friend no matter what character they are playing. Soon they will require that people use their real first and last names to post in the forums.

The reaction to this, of course, is outrage. I won't go into the myriad of ridiculous reasons why people think this is bad, I will simply translate them all for you in one sentence: I'm worried about using my real name because I am ignorant of real world security issues, or I am worried about using my real name because I am - in fact - a giant fucking asshole to everyone online when I think I am anonymous and now everyone will know who that giant fucking asshole really is.

I think it's a great idea. It may cut down on the retards who feel the need to post bullshit and clog up the forums with useless posts.

Some slogan suggestions

You know, I think some people could benefit from some news slogans.

The Brady Campaign - Spreading hatred for law abiding gun owners since 1974.

The Brady Campaign - Trying to make rape and murder easier since 1974.

Too much truth in that advertising?

The Brady Campaign - A hate group?

Inspired by this article:

As discussed on the NY Firearms forum by myself and others.

i think its funny that people are saying all of this... but i also think its a cheap shot on an opponent which im not a fan of. The brady group isnt a hate group as much as MADD isnt a hate group against alcohol consumption... they are however a group of poorly informed, closed minded... dare i say elitists?

My Response:

No, they really are a hate group. The difference is this: MADD is Mother's Against Drunk Driving. Drunk driving has been illegal for a long time, and before that it was frowned upon as something jackasses did. MADD spreads awareness of this illegal activity in the hopes to persuade people not to do it by showing the consequences of breaking this law.

The Brady Campaign spreads ill will towards a group of law abiding citizens enjoying their God given right to keep and bear arms as provisioned for in the Constitution of this United States. How often do they also mock and insult lawful citizens? They promote hatred towards gun owners. Hence, Hate Group. The NRA makes mock of them, yes, but the NRA isn't asking us to outlaw non-gun owners, or harass them with nonsense lawsuits, or blame them for every evil thing that happens to us. Brady promotes hate, and that is a fact.

I never really thought about it until I read that article, but it really does make sense. I read news articles all the time where the Brady folks try to paint every gun owner as a destructive beast who willingly brings society to the brink of destruction, and it brings to mind the Nazi's painting the Jews as the bad guys, or racist people in the US calling other people unintelligent beasts simply because of their skin color. The Brady Campaign seeks to spread hatred of gun owners. They are, in fact, a hate group. Sure, sometimes they try to hide it behind flowery BS - in the same way that religious zealots spread hatred of gays by "hating the sin but loving the sinner" - but they are, in fact, a hate group.

EDIT: I have been informed that MADD is, indeed, fairly wacky now and is calling for prohibition and other such nonsense.
