I just logged into my communications preferences, and the box to "Show my Real ID on Friends of Friends lists" is checked, apparently by default.Back during the original Real ID conflagaration/fiasco years ago, I decided to turn on parental controls to ensure that Real ID would never be active on my account. While that "Enable Read ID" remains unchecked, the lower option about showing my Real ID to friends of friends is checked, seemingly as a result of this change.Given all the uproar during the Real ID controversy years ago, it is quite disheartening that Blizzard would make this option enabled by default instead of making it something you have to intentional opt in for.This just reinforces my original decision to turn that feature off and lock it via imposing Parental Controls on myself years ago, because Blizzard certainly isn't looking out for the privacy of its customers, yet again. Very sad and disappointing.
