WordPress-type user authentication

    WordPress has a really nice authentication method: by user’s email. No password or registration. Is it possible to use similar authentication in bbpress?

    Really, registration is unnecessary and creates a problem of spam nicknames cluttering the admin panel. Akismet deals with spam comments well.

    Wouldn’t it make sense to switch to the wordpress-type authentication by poster’s email?

    Please note that this is not the same as anonymous posting.

    Additionally, bbpress really lacks wordpress’ moderation options. It would be surely a good idea to moderate all comments which contain links since almost all of them are spam comments which make it through Akismet.
