en WordPress.com Forums › Staff Answers Problems with comments Author Posts March 15, 2012 at 8:52 am #845630 hbdchickMember I get an error message when I try to leave a comment on my own blog: “You must be logged in to comment with that email address.” Many of my readers are experiencing the same problem. However, I have my comments set to enable anyone to leave a comment, i.e. they are not required to leave an email address or be logged in. From looking at the Support Forum, it looks as though other bloggers are having the same/similar problem. Is there a system-wide problem? Help! Thanks.

Now, if someone tries to comment with an email address that’s attached to a WordPress.com account, they’ll need to sign into WordPress.com before they can comment. If commenters have forgotten their password they can request a reset: http://wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword If someone tries to comment with an email that’s not tied to a WordPress.com account, they won’t need to sign up for an account (unless you’ve enabled this option at Settings -> Discussion).
