No, not fear. Design. I'm the only user of my blog. I don't want or
need anybody else to be registered on it, because *I'm the only user
of my blog*.

Commenters aren't users, they're commenters. They read it and they
leave comments. Whether their user data is real or not is irrelevant,
as I see it.

I disagree, but more power to you. Just make sure to leave an off
switch, because I won't use it.
