    Why do my readers have to log in with their name and email even though I have not checked that in the discussion or comments sections for my blogs?
    Blog url: http://onourowninitaly.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is onourowninitaly.wordpress.com.

    They don’t. However, the prompt will still appear.

    This page > Settings > Discussion is where you set up defaults for comments.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/

    Discussion Settings
    Other comment settings
    _Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
    _Users must be registered and logged in to comment

    Note that the prompt to submit and email address and a website URL will still appear but providing an email address and logging in are not required.

    You can post instructions for your visitors in a text widget if you wish. That’s easy to do. You copy and paste this into a text widget:

    Readers: Note that the email address and logging in prompts do appear for comments on this blog, but providing an email address and logging in are not required.

    See here and read about how to set up a text widget. http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    P.S. Do be sure to set up full comment moderation ie. “An administrator must always approve the comment” because anonymous commenting is bound to increase the amount of spam your blog will receive.
