One thing I really like about Blogger, Wordpress, and some proprietary blog software is the name-links.
Commenters can choose to set up a link to their own blogs or other urls, thereby taking the opportunity to establish credibility and accountability.
A man or woman who stands behind his or her words with both name and credentials counts for a lot more than an anonymous commenter, or even the user of a consistent pseudonym.
But know this.
Any spammer, scammer, puppymiller, conspiracy theorist, or any other category of thief who comments here as a way of getting his name link "out there" and hawking his wares will find himself in spam hell and publicly called-out.
That is all.
