I understand your intent, Paul, and I partially agree with you. I certainly don't want to see "xyz123" and "Britney Sprears" all over this place. But the policy of "no obviously ficticios names" is inherently flawed, and all it takes is another Alfred Newmann to point it out.
I have two possible solutions:
1. Do not enforce naming policy. The "xyz123" and "Britney Sprears" will eventually go away, as this site would be of no interest to them. If they don't go away, it will mean exactly that, -- JR is a playground for the middle schoolers, and there would be no reason to pretend otherwise.
2. Continue to encourage people to use their real names, but don't push it too hard. Moderation is the key, even in moderation.
You don't want to see the discusion about these two evil men every time you post a Java question.
