I ran a little impromptu experiment over the weekend. Switched the blog to allow comments for signed-in users only. Which is why none of the comments from the weekend are "anonymous," though neither are any of them fully identified.
We're still working on creating a different system, but in the meantime I just thought I'd have a little holiday fun by trying this.
The change probably cut down on comments, though people may also have been too busy shoveling.
Did any of you anonymous people not post because you didn't want to create a sign-in? Feel free to respond now, the system has been switched back to anonymous.
Did you find this system better, worse or just different?
