    I use it for private education pieces to share with specific clients and don't want search engines to tie me up. I also use for our church. Is there some reason they want us to now use real name, and if so, are there some alternatives to them that might be better to use for private (linked) use? Thanks....

    No, it asks you to enter your real name, you can decline that.
