Just for the record, I in no way think this is good for the gamer, Verno; I just don't see it as a huge deal. And I think Bob Kotick is the industry's biggest jackass by a mile.
I am a private person, but I've never been a fan of anonymity on the internet. I think we tend to act more genuine when we have a name attached to our posts. Which is why I would never say anything to someone on the net I wouldn't tell them to their face. It's too easy to condition yourself to be a douche otherwise.
I realize this has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand - just thinking out loud.
