1. Can we by-pass the need to register (via WordPress) thereby allowing “anyone” to add comments (as in the “anonymous” feature on Blogger)? I’m thinking that freer access would allow “outside experts” to give us more input. We, the blog owners can “moderate” and edit comments, as needed.
2. Any way to measure usage? Who/when added comments? Categories of comments (request, clarification, issue, problem, solution, etc.)?
Thanks to one and all for your constructive replies on these ideas.
However, there is a big risk of spam then.
For instance, in the CALT blog, when I configured it, after a few days, I saw some spam appearing that have been posted by bots. On day I had more than 10 posting.
I believe the better is to create a guest account that people can use if they want to post comments. (at least, this procedure will filter the spamming bots)
