Ah, didn't know since I never needed to change it.

Blizzard is out to steal your information and sell it to Facebook and any advertiser who's got the pocket change! Quick, delete your account before it's too late!

At least it's not as severe as giving out your IP adress or social security number exposed.
That's one of the very very very few relieving points I've noticed.

Then again, I don't even use facebook so that still leaves me anonymous (if only slightly).

Even Facebook lets you change your name.

I put my name in as "a a" on battle net when I first signed up for it.  Afterwards, I looked at it, and wanted to change it to my real name, since I had all of my cd keys tied to it, and at the time, I trusted Blizzard with information.  But I couldn't change it.  As it turns out, that was a good thing.  For me, anyway.  Sucks for everyone else who can't.  Is there even a way to delete an account?  To remove the cd keys from an account, so that you can make a new on and transfer them?  I kinda doubt it.

Turn Cali into a smoking crater in the ground.

People have been constantly pointing fingers at Activision but after what someone told me I'm not sure it's Activision doing this stuff. I don't know who but I'm pretty sure Blizzard's just been this stupid all along and only now are really letting it show (lol brett wood @ TFT release)

If you don't touch your account for 90 days, I believe it gets deleted. At least it did for me in WC3

He meant Battle.net accounts, which don't get deleted.

Good news: [URL=http://"http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=13816839821&sid=1"]The forums will not yet implement RealIDs.

Peer pressure always wins.

Now we just need LAN, mod support, and a functional gaming service.
