Content makers using the rel=author tag are easy to spot, in the SERP's you'll see the author's picture and it will list how many "Google Circles" they belong to.
Uhm, no, it won't. It takes more than the mere existence of the "author" markup. Which is fortunate.
Unanswered question: How can they force you to disclose your real "real name"? What if you give your name as John Smith? Who's going to call you a liar?
