I have a lot of respect for the legacy of #RalphNader, and he clearly respects the legacy of #RobertFellmeth, but listening to these two old men discuss internet regulation on Nader's #podcast is truly painful:
For a start, they don't know that FB already enforces real names and have completely missed the long-running debate about the #UnintendedConsequences of this:
Everything else in the discussion is about as far behind the 8 ball.
And yes, maybe having a privacy feature of displaying just an alias for a contributor would be nice, but to minimize the burden of proof that you're contributing in good faith I think it's a good idea that staff should have access to real names/identities of other staff.
OTOH wikipedia can do just fine with small contributions from anonymous people, so there's that. :)
