Would You Post Under Real Name?

Since I started this blog, I've adamantly opposed resorting to real identities for the commenters on the various threads. I'm still against the idea. But not as adamantly. In fact, I'm curious how things would run here, if everyone commented under their real names. I can think of a dozen or so who wouldn't/couldn't continue, as a result of possible exposure to retaliators who are too numerous in the "City with a Heart." I don't want to debate the merits of pseudonyms versus real identities again. But I do want to know this:

Question: Would you continue to post on Huckleberries, if you were required to use your real name?
