...but we do require an account before you can post comments; anonymous posting has never been allowed. We have tried to avoid forcing people to disclose an email address if they don't want to - lots of people don't. That might have to come to an end, though, if we were to adopt an approach like this. Limiting posts to subscribers and, instead, requiring the disclosure of a credit card number seems easier :).
