The simplest solution is the best most of the time. Comments should be for subscribers only. All other solutions are a lot of work without sufficient return to justify the effort. Yes some good content will be lost. That is too bad. LWN is a great site and is great value for the money. Hopefully most of these individuals who care enough to take the time to post intelligent comments will care enough to help support an excellent resource.
If subscribers are to blame for crap being posted, then it would be appropriate to have some monitoring and if after a couple of polite reprimands these individuals can not behave in a civilized manner they should be ejected from the LWN community.
I'm sure we are all busy and value LWN for being a site that delivers good content in a manner that processed relatively quickly. Let's keep LWN great.
