    Worth a try, right?
    If this is dumb, please tell me.
    If you think I could re-word anything better, please tell me.
    Any thoughts appreciated, you got it... please tell me.
    If you like the idea, spread the word.

    I don't expect to really change things, but since it is so easy to start a petition nowadays.... why not try?

    Petition Google, please don't make us use our real names

    Really? Not one comment?
    No one browse this forum, or what?

    It's not that no one browses this forum, but I personally don't think it's a big deal they're using real names.

    First I've heard of it. I'll sign it because I don't want to use my real name online as I have a unique name. If you google my name you will only get pages and pages of me. I can't hide :blink:

    And according to the white pages I am the only one with this name. My mom always said I was special ;)

    person in the U.S. has this name

    I personally don't have a problem with my real name being out there, it's out there already anyway. Does it need to be used to review an app? I personally don't think so, but if that's the way it is, then that's that. I got a bunch of reviews on Amazon with my real name, don't bother me.
