Readable Names

Asks commenters to write their names in the language that your blog uses.

This plugin asks commenters to write their names in the language that your blog uses. Using readable names written in your blog's native language will enhance the discussion. Strangers who want to leave comments on your blog, have to speak your language.

Customizing predefined rules can create your own slang.

Less spam is a welcome side effect on non-Latin alphabets.


The plugin comes with a set of predefined standards for every translated language.
