Realnamenpflicht ist Machtmissbrauch

Die US-Anthropologin Danah Boyd hat jetzt auch zur Diskussion über Realnamenpflicht und Pseudonyme gebloggt: “Real Names” Policies Are an Abuse of Power. Ein Ausschnitt:

The people who most heavily rely on pseudonyms in online spaces are those who are most marginalized by systems of power. “Real names” policies aren’t empowering; they’re an authoritarian assertion of power over vulnerable people. These ideas and issues aren’t new (and I’ve even talked about this before), but what is new is that marginalized people are banding together and speaking out loudly. And thank goodness.

Sie verweist auch noch auf die Kampagnenseite “My Name Is Me”.
