I'd like to second euvitudo's suggestion.
Having subscriber-only comments avoids, for all but the most extreme cases, any issues wrt censorship. Letters to the editor is always available to get communications into LWN, and in fact, it might revive the LttE page which has suffered greatly since comments were introduced.
And, lastly, this policy might help, in a small way, the number of LWN subscribers. Never a bad thing... 8-)
