Description

On the https://blog.torproject.org/admin/people page it turns out some people have the "blogger" role, and other people don't.

There are now two intermediate roles, "authenticated user" and "blogger". I guess that was true on the old blog too, but I don't think we had anybody in the "has an account but doesn't have the blogger role" there. Somehow some of the users lost that role in the transition. Or maybe we did have that distinction, but the people without the blogger role could still blog, edit comments, etc on the old blog. I'm not sure.

I just went through and added the blogger role to most people, so it isn't an urgent issue now.

Is there a downside to merging the two roles, that is, simplifying by making everybody who has an account into a blogger?

I guess we could go the other way too, which is letting ordinary people make accounts on our blog, so they can be the same human each time they comment, and maybe even so they can bypass captchas and stuff. Is there a downside to that? :)

I am not sure we should have the registration process open. We will end up with lots of users. I also think there might be more security issues too, not sure I want this. I am open to discuss this more though.

Regarding the role, all the users now have blogger role. This was just a migration glitch.
