Roy Greenslade:

From tomorrow, the Sun Chronicle, a Massachusetts paper, will charge would-be commenters a nominal one-off fee of 99 cents. But it has to be paid by credit card, which means providing a real name and address.And the name on the credit card will be the name that will appear on comments. So it’s goodbye to anonymity.

Seems like a great way to get relevant thoughtful comments. Should be great.
