Just another reminder that pseudonyms and screened deployment of identity are very common.

Really, the majority of the people who support a policy like Facebook and Google's on names appear to merely be naive. They've no idea that anyone ever uses a name outside what's on their birth certificate in what they consider real life - outside of maybe some person in the witness protection program they heard about once.

I've also noticed in the Internet-wide discussion over this, that every single person I've seen, so far, who says "good! Save us from those scummy anonymous people, everyone should have their real name and photo online!" have been men.

Now, I'm sure there's got to be a self-righteous and naive comment from a woman *somewhere*. But so far, I literally have not seen one.
