Open participation: a note about registration

Update: currently anonymous users can reply to forum posts, but they cannot create a new forum thread. The major difficulty in allowing anonymous users to post anyting anywhere is to deal with spammers who abuse everything that can be abused. Our aim is to give anonymous users as much possibilities to participate as possible, but it will depend on our technical ability to fight spammers and other abusers.

This site is community based, yet registration is not required before you can take part in the discussion. Most sites require you to be logged in before you can post comments, and some sites won't even let you view the content if you are not registered and logged in. We couldn't find any compelling reason to do the same.
