Possibly, though it will lead to arguments over what constitutes a
"real name".  For example, if I were to use what most people mean by
that, it would actually constitute hiding; what reputation I have is
under the Mouse name, not the name my parents gave me.

That's been known for a long time and doesn't seem to have stopped
anyone yet.
