Your privacy was already gone

I hate to say it but the concept of privacy on the internet is really a smokescreen.  once your ip is logged it’s a trivial matter to trace it back to your isp then get a court order to reveal the account details.  REALID by activision is just making it easy for them so they can sell your information even more.  Of course they probably already have it…so this just makes it truly transparent.
