No matter what opinion you may hold on this those who have attempted to characterize this as a legal privacy issue should really give it a rest.
This is a private board, and if the administrators (owners) decide they will require some form of real name disclosure (as some other boards I am on do) than they can do it.
All this "by law I have the right to..." is simply inaccurate, and might actually mislead someone into believing it is true.
It is amazing how many people claim they have rights, that really don't exist.
