    Default RTF - All users by REAL NAME ONLY

    The latest Bo Taylor hubbub has really got me thinking.

    The person who started the whole thing backpeddaled bigtime when I PM'd asking for real name and contact information. To my mind, all users should be willing to let me know their real name. They all sure as heck know mine - and this person sure as heck know's Bo's!

    I want to let you all know that when a topic comes up that involved defamation, accusation and general livelihood-inpacting stuff, it bums me out. It worries me, and it makes me question where RTF's involvement should be.

    I want to know what your opinion is on RTF and the possible requirement of real names for all accounts.

    Please take a moment to click a button.

    I would appreciate any and all comments that you want to share in this thread.

    Thanks! Chris

    a long time coming. i hope everyone "votes" it in... Also, set your board to require YOUR approval of incoming registrations. This will prevent cowards from hopping on, registering with a hotmail/yahoo/etc. account, posting something nasty and then bailing -- as it appears has happaned with the poster in question?

    It is obvious what I think a person should use for their member name. But can you actually verify that the name someone gives you is their actual legal name? HPW

    Personally I think it would be a real hoot to chase Bo around with the bus for a while, maybe not exactly run him under but maybe just a good old fashioned door pop or 2.

    He's pretty quick, I mean it's not like we are jumping the curb after some blue haired little old lady.

    Everyone use their real names and have the courage to stand behind their opinions.

    Chris, no problem giving you my real name and info, and have shared that and met many RTF folks, but use a screen name becasue my wife is in the court system/law enforcement and don't need some idiot tracking us or our young kids down.
