A note on Wesleying comments

Hey friends,

In the interest of promoting better discussion in the comment sections of Wesleying posts, we’re requiring readers to provide a name and email address with their comments from now on.

We don’t know how you feel about it, but it’s really annoying to read a comment thread (like this one, or this one, or this one) where almost everything is written by “Anonymous”, and commenters have to refer to each other by their posting order or timestamp if they get into a debate or discussion.

As always, we encourage you to use your real name, or at least a consistent nickname, when you comment. You can still be anonymous (well, pseudonymous) – the only difference now is that “Anonymous” won’t be the default setting.

If having to write in a name/email every time you comment is too taxing, feel free to register an account. You can stay signed in whenever you visit Wesleying, and maybe even establish an online identity – an important step towards your Internet self-actualization.

    #3/4: Wesleying is only three years old, things change yo. The Internet is a better place when people are names, not numbers.

    Noa/11:32, that’s just how WordPress works. There’s no “name only” option, at least not yet. And yeah, #5 and 8 have it figured out, really not a big deal.

    Why require an email? I don’t see the point of that… Is it possible to just require a name, if we want the comment discussions to be more readable, and anonymi can type out anonymous?
