So, let me summarise:

1) Hackage currently has a policy (not really a restriction if no Real
World checks are done) that real names should be used.

2) Some people don't like this policy.

3) The people that don't like this policy have reasons why, which
fails to convince people who have no problems with the policy.

4) The people who support the policy don't see why anyone has a problem with it.

5) No-one is convincing anyone else to their point of view, so we have
a stale mate.
