    mostly read, but did occasionally comment on.  They give the option to have an account with your real name just on their servers (no linking to Facebook) but they do claim to insist upon a real name, verified by them by a phone call.  There's a user now posting there with the "name' of Benz Junque so I have a feeling there are some people who slip around the system.  I don't want to give up my login ID just to post comments, and they turn off the restriction when they're live-blogging, but since I've never had a Facebook account and never will, I guess I'll be limited to posting here.  Well, Kos has promised not to ever do this Facebook crap so that's a plus.
