Last night, I was talking to a friend on Facebook about Topix. They said they didn't like it, nor use it, because you don't have to use your real name.

I know a lot of people feel this way also.

Topix on the other hand seems to support fake user-names. What do you think? Did Topix make a mistake by enabling user's to use made up user-names?

People shouldn't get on here, if they're going to get mad anyhow.

I think topix show require registration with a verified Email account... real Name is not possible unless you required a someone to provide copies of ID's and even then you could supply fake ID's ...

A simple fix to 99% of all problems found on topix would be solved with simple Registration with a Verifiable Email...

While a person wanting to cause a problem could just re-register with a new free email addy when their ID was banned and the Email addy used to reg is blocked, they would either stop causing problems or run out of Email sources in short order....

Of course there would be a few that would just keep making new email addy's through one of the free email servers but it would be so much effort as to be of absolutely no concern...

Who cares if someone has several Registered Accounts if when they post they do not break the TOS of the site... If they break the TOS they should have their Reg'ed accounts and the E-mails used for that account Banned...
