On a public ideas portal: require a user account before posting, voting and commenting.

Our public ideas portal is today open for all people to post.

I’ve been recommended by our internal security expert to require people to create an account before allowing them to post, vote and comment.

When I set the ideas portal to be private users without an account is meet by the below view…and that does not encourage people to create an account.

    Thank you for your idea. Public portals do require an email address at minimum before posting. As noted, private portals require all users to setup an account before using the portal. 

    Given the current options and historical feedback, we are unlikely to make changes in this area. We hope you can understand.
