PHEW. Blizzard just backed down on RealID.

Thank heavens someone at Blizzard was astute enough to look at THE INTERNET EXPLODING and figure "Hey, um, maybe we SHOULDN'T force our users to violate the first rule every child being schooled in basic Internet safety is ever taught."

Always nice to get a win. Granted, we probably didn't persuade them on moral grounds or convince them of the danger, but rather just overwhelmed them with the sheer force of "Angry Nerds are ANGRY and when they are ANGRY they are slightly less likely to give us money," but hey, it works.
