Please note: leaving a comment on a story and participating in the forums does not require a site login. Registering accounts for public comments is optional.
Your account doesn’t need to be local — you can register with your LiveJournal account, Twitter, OpenID, etc (you’ll have to edit your account to replace the dummy email address WordPress uses for external accounts if you want email notifications). If you’re shy and want true anonymity, though, you have the option of creating an account here that no one would recognize. No other users will see the email address you register with.
We only ask that you do not abuse anonymity to post harassment or spam — such posts will be deleted. Criticism offered in good faith does not qualify as harassment, but malicious intent is easier to spot than you may think.
