Anon... or not to Anon...

I think that is something that each individual person who is writing a review or a novel should get to decide, not an entity like Amazon, Goodreads, or even BookLikes (for example).  

 

I have the 'real name badge' on Amazon, but I don't think that most people realize how easy it is to alter what appears, once you have the badge.  

 

That said... if anyone truly is looking to remain completely anonymous, if their very life is dependent upon remaining anonymous, I have to say, they should stay off-line... it isn't all that difficult if you have the skills, to reveal a person's true identity or location.
