First of all, as a paying subscriber I think we are important enough for the future of LWN that we shoul be allowed to discuss this without lots of non-subscribers whining.
I also think that LWN has reached the "critical mass" where restricting postings to subscribers only will not have a big impact on the number of quality posts.
Abusing the system is of course a lot more difficult when you have to pay, because each time your account is locked due to spamming, you have to pay to open a new one under a new name.
And finaly I think this solution is good for the number of subscribers, which will give more money to the editors and ultimatly even better quality to us readers.
So I think restricting postings to subscribers only is a simple and good way of doing this!
