This morning we had our 2,000th registered user, or commenter. Their User Number is actually 2269, but I regularly delete accounts set up by spam bots so they are the 2,000th now in the system.
The lucky No 2,000 is ironically called “Deep Throat”, and they posted on the Public Health Bill.
I can’t recall when I turned registration on, but I think it was only a year or so ago. I was worried it might discourage people from commenting but it doesn’t seem to be, and most people find it easy to do.
