Some people have suggested that I turn on the functionality that requires people to sign in to make comments. I'm hesitant to do that because I like having active duty guys being able to comment without fear of repercussion -- although, to be honest, the Navy would either have to get Google or Sitemeter to give up the URL information if they wanted to track someone, since I use the free Sitemeter
version that only displays the last 100 visitors.
That being said, sometimes (especially in long comment threads) it gets tough to figure out which anonymous commenter is saying what. I suggest that commenters who wish to remain anonymous use the "Name/URL" option when posting their comments; you can pick out some "handle", then leave the URL space blank. You don't have to have a Blogger account to do that, and it leaves no more of a paper trail than commenting anonymously. (The disadvantage, of course, is that anyone could hijack that identity.)
Does anyone else have any suggestions on how to make the commenting here more enjoyable?
