    there’s no technical limitation that prevents allowing unregistered users to subscribe to categories, so why is this feature available only to registered users?

    To encourage WordPress signups and because it’s not a feature we’ve wanted to develop and support.

    Also while technically possible, it does not provide a very good front end user experience. Checks would need implementing to ensure access to settings is only granted to the email address owner, a password or some level of authentication would be needed so why not use what WordPress provides already and sign up.

    i prefer openness and ease – i have no sign-ups on my site because i don’t wish to make people jump through hoops to leave a comment or subscribe to content they like
