I'm thinking about changing the comment policy so that people have to sign up for some kind of a name before they post. It doesn't have to be their name, it could be a complete pseudonym. It will just make it much easier for me so I don't have to keep referring to people as "Anon 5:45" and wondering if Anon 5:45 is the same as Anon 8:30, plus it will add at least add a little accountability to the comments of this site. Finally, I'd like to be able to learn more about who reads and comments here -- not necessarily personal identity, but more on the lines of getting to know an online persona, as I have many people in the past at places like Blue Mass Group.
Toss in your opinion in the comments below. Would you sign up for some kind of an identity? Do you think this is a good idea?
