There are any number of reasons why someone would want to post anonymously. To arbitrarily discount, or worse yet, ignore a comment just because it was submitted anonymously is a very bad idea. The comments should be judged on their merits, not whether the commenter gave their name.

It would solve our spam problem which is good but would it solve the anonymity of users, no. Take your comment, you put in the name of "I'm a web genious" That doesn't change anything. Worse, it would cut back on comments. I never comment on sites that require registration.

I'm open to suggestions and opinions

I mean I could post as Boups himself (I'm not, and I won't, because I'm not a jerk and I think Boups is a stand-up guy) but you see the potential for abuse here, right?
