allow name/email entry for anonymous comments

Title
allow name/email entry for anonymous comments

Short, concise description of the idea
when an anonymous user comments, let them provide a name and/or email address, and display it when reading comments.

Full description of the idea
when making comments on other blogs (like TypePad :-) there are fields to enter your name, email address and so on. LJ doesn't have these, so most anonymous comments are just "(Anonymous)".

if there were such fields present on LJ's anonymous comment forms, it would make anonymous commenters more likely to identify themselves, so you know who they actually are. (of course, you can always type your name in the comment text, but i imagine most people don't bother.)

An ordered list of benefits
  • know who's leaving comments in your journal

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • none?

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • add some new fields ;-)
