As you may know, we have six administrators scattered around the globe who can delete spam and other inappropriate posts, and keep the blog in order. Our posting policy has been extremely liberal, and we do allow anonymous posts. This has been very useful for puzzle setters who want to comment on an issue without creating an account, as well as people who are experiencing technical difficulties and can't get Live Journal to fix their problem.
However, there may come a time when we need to protect ourselves better. The only viable option we have is to require everyone who comments to have an account and be a member of Times for the Times. We do have open membership - just click on the 'Join This Community' link, and you're a member!
So I suggest that if you've been posting anonymously, you sign up for a Live Journal account. If you have not joined the community, but have been posting with a Live Journal account (or through Google or Facebook or Twitter), you might want to click on the 'Join This Community' link so you will be ready for whatever happens. As always, please behave properly, and think before you post.
If we do decide to make this change, I will post a warning and give everyone three or four days advance notice.
