In this project I get offended by names like "eLiTEhAcker", and "gl.tter".
I don't get offended by names I can't separate from real names, like for
example "John Glitter".
In other projects I may have different opinion.
If 95% uses their real names (the poll right now) and some of the 5% uses a
fake real name, then the pseudo-wanted names will have to understand the
"culture" (even if it isn't written).
Discussing with an anonymous person is also uncomfortable. I've experienced
where anonymous person really goes crazy after a while and tries to destroy
works for other. They feel they can do that because no one knows who they are.
That experience make me support the real-name-policy.
