It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person , either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment.
Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
