i just set up the forum on my corporate intranet website but the staff are not happy that their login is tied to the active directory which will show their real names. they complain that they are not encouraged to speak their mind with their real names. fake names will allow them say it as it is without any inhibition.
but i sense that it is possible that their fists are already curled with flames ready to be thrown - at each other and especially at the decision makers - under pseudonyms and i neither want to take the responsibility of that or the added work of moderating rants and raves that are unacceptable to management.
if i enable free usernames, i am sure there will be increased traffic. but i do not know how most corporate organizations manage forum usernames on their intranet forums.
