100% in agreement in that we need to remain anonymous in this time. Honestly, with these kinds of things, I don't see how it can be so different to release with your real name, a nick, or no nick (iND, other shit).
I think Geohot may have done it once (iPhone jailbreak), obviously his nick revealing enough of his real name, and he said it multiple times. Nothing bad happened to him as a result. He assumed he was untouchable. It does not work like that!
Even those with nicks in the various scenes have thought they were untouchable, using multiple levels of security, both technological and mind (meaning YOU determine if the person is safe or a hazard; not just the fact that they got past your SHA256 handshake).
I don't see how Geohot didn't see this coming, or the fail0verflow team. They were broadcast were on the Internet. It was a good show and I'm sure LOTS of people enjoyed it. I know I did. I also felt like Sony will do something and that Sony was in that audience just to see.
Anybody know real names on Team XeLove? How about for Team Jungle? The answer is no.
Wii-hacking teams/people and others revealing real names is an anomaly. I don't expect it to last long.
