Comment Registration: Boon to Mankind or Threat to Democracy?

| Wed Jan. 11, 2012 12:08 AM EST

I've been talking with the MoJo brain trust for a while about whether we should require registration for commenters. The pros and cons are fairly obvious, I think, and we've pretty much come to the conclusion that we should do it. Before we do, though, I wanted to run it by my readers. If you like the idea, which would probably improve the general tone of commenting, let us know. If you hate the idea because you'd have to register, let us know. This is your chance to weigh in.

In comments, of course.
