I'm pretty sure this has been discussed before (though damned if I can find the link right now), but can we please turn off anon commenting, at least for the time being?
I used to be one of the more vocal defenders of leaving it on, but in the last month or so, the cons have started to outweigh the pros. Right now, it seems like the majority of the anon posts are twits trying to stir up wank and flamewars in-comm, and while I used to enjoy the occasional in-house wank, enough is enough already. I also think a lot of the anons lately post anon not because they simply don't have an account, but because they can get away with things like encouraging borderline, if not outright, trolling without the risk of being banned, or even without the risk of making an arse out of themselves and suffering the social consequences (so to speak), as someone with an account would.
I'll miss the good anons, but a) they're really not worth the agrravation anymore, and b) if push comes to shove, I will shell out the $5 and buy them an account, if they want to stay. I know this also eliminates anon wank tipoffs, but people are annoyed about that anyway, and if the wank is funny enough, it'll get posted without help.
