Question on signing in

I still have this question:

I'm trying to figure out what the purpose of signing in is, except for the administrator and authors, of course.  My blog will only have one author to start, me.  If I invite another author, she will also have to sign in.  But what about comments?  It seems visitors can post comments without having to sign in.  Is this typical for a blog?  Is there any benefit to the user to sign in before posting comments?  If the sign in is for admin and authors only, should it be in a less conspicuous place?

Logins are for admins/editors etc., it is true for all blogging software I'm aware of. Sign in button is where theme author decided to put it, it can be removed all together if you want to (usually by commenting out a link in the site.master for current theme).

Ok, thank you.  I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something.
