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

How can I translate the plugin in my native language?

  • Download the development version.
  • Find the file readable-names.pot inside the subfolder languages.
  • Translate it with the free editor “Poedit”.
  • Contact me through the dedicated support forum.

Why should I forbid the use of any foreign alphabet?

You cannot read foreign alphabet characters. “Доктор Бро” is just not readable for you, if you don't speak Russian. Other commenters don't expect foreign alphabets on your site at all.

Could it happen that ordinary comments get lost?

No, it's impossible. Comments with ordinary names pass through without any side effect.
