Dear JGOers,

I've been giving this a lot of thought in the last months and I've finally reached the conclusion that to ensure the continuity of JGO we have to defend your privacy with unprecedented effort. In my opinion more websites should steer in the direction of making all traces of their visitors anonymous by default. For this reason all usernames will be changed to anonymous. This brand new feature is soundly based on the security through obscurity principle, which I believe should be an integrated part of a well designed website.

To reveal your identity to others, simply PM me and if I manage to identify you, your name will be disclosed, for everyone to see.

With kind regards,
 - Riven

P.S.
I'd like to hear your feedback on this one, as it's one of the most important changes to JGO since 1999.

I'm part of the Facebook/Twitter generation and I think everything should be made public.  A PM is crass, please make my account name visible to others.

I've added a few of you to the promiscuous list. Please make yourself known if you have nothing to hide.

I don't get it . What is wrong in displaying peoples nicknames (which they can by any mean choose something totally random) ?
Am I missing something ?

what about realtime GPU based forum obfuscation? Was the caesar cipher proposal rejected? The idea was to request a one-time pad via paper mail for every new thread.
