I've changed my mind a couple of times about whether to allow anonymous comments on this blog. I figured that it would allow people to contribute meaningfully without having to have an OpenID account, or something similar. But I've forgotten what the guys at Penny Arcade have to say about this.
So I'm shutting down the ability to anonymously post onto this blog. I still like freedom of expression and opinion, and in the interest of reducing bile in the comments, I'm taking away the anonymity.
