There have been a number of complaints recently about comments on IPR.
The biggest issue that bothers me is the claim that people are posting under the names of others, making it look like one person is saying something else.
I’m thinking about requiring people to login in order to comment. I believe this would prevent posting under someone else’s identity.
I would allow people to remain anonymous and even allow people to have multiple accounts (maybe 2 or 3 at most but I’m flexible). We would have to work out how to protect anonymity but I’m sure we can get that done.
Others have expressed concern that requiring login will be difficult for some. I doubt that’s a serious issue but will hold off for now.
Please comment on this post so we can discuss the idea.
