On the dot-Commonweal and America In All Things blogs, the comment maker’s e-mail is revealed if the cursor is placed on the name. I understand that e-mail addresses can be faked, but the disclosure of the address may reduce incivility. (It does not prevent the expression of strong opinions!)
Does Beliefnet give you that option?
