To cut down on trolls, we decided to start off with oAuths to take care of that issue (hopefully)... thoughts?

I remember this (the trolling issue) was a slight problem when SiteChat[1] was submitted to HN. However, it does add to the sign-up friction, so I'm not sure if the trade-off is worth it or not.


Interesting - thanks for sending.

Yeah - we'll need to figure this out. When we posted to r/chrome last week, this was the same comment we got. Then again, we haven't heard this feedback from the, I guess, "non-technical" folks that's been using it... but we will think about this some more for sure.
