Even if it is some sort of a deterrent, what's the point if it's going to expose the majority of gamers who don't use the forums or who are legit? Tying to real names causes a breech of privacy, in my mind. I don't need some kid knowing my real name, looking me up on Facebook, and harassing me. People use screen-names for a reason: to be one step withdrawn from their real name, offering a little shield of privacy against the rest of the mad, mad world.
