Plus, he already stated that vBulletin didn't validate the real names (not surprisingly) and he was OK with that.
I am not even sure why I am dignifying your comments with an answer.
It would be hard for me to care any less about why he wants the feature. I don't mean that in an unkind way, I just mean that I do not know the guy and in any case he is certainly free to have whatever kind of forum he wants, and he can certainly have whatever features he wants for his forum. As I explained in my previous post, I was curious as to why he felt the feature to be important. So unless you know the opening poster intimately and have become his personal spokesperson, perhaps it would be best if you let him answer the question.
