In my humble opinion this sounds like a very, very bad idea. I could 
rant on, but Ryan Jaeb has described it well and I completely agree with 

Undoubtly, if you go ahead with this, there will be a lot less bug 
reports. You are basically alienating the community.

And it's not just about bugs. If you have to be an author in order to 
comment, this kind of discourse: will be a thing of the past.
