I, as well as Spirou, recently have been getting requests from Xnielsenx to remove their alias (and the aliases of others) from the FurRio article, with the reason being feared/legitimate harassment.

Here are links to the discussions:

I'm personally loathe to remove them (especially considering, if the article is excluded, what "harassment" could it possibly incite?), but I thought I'd see what the other admins have to say. Equivamp - talk 08:50, 9 April 2013 (EDT)

I think all editors should contribute to such discussions. But back to the topic . . . yeah, I'm not seeing a justification. When you run an event, your name will be associated with that event. If you truly have people harassing you about it, they're not suddenly going to forget who you are. And if the "harassment" is simply people asking "are you going to restart it", say "no" somewhere, get it referenced here, and be done with it. --GreenReaper(talk) 23:19, 9 April 2013 (EDT)
First, they are aliases. Two, as GreenReaper noted, even if all information of this event and who ran it could disappeared from the net, there will be a bunch of obsessed individuals that would log, talk, and dissect an event/site every single change and minutia, and its owners doings, 24/7. The human brain does not have a permeant delete function, and they would just pass along their obsession for harassment for these individuals to the next generation of fanatics (see: trolls and furry fandom). No logical argument for non-RL historical name removal - Spirou 00:22, 10 April 2013 (EDT)
