  • There are sites - I forget which, but I've seen some - that require a user account, but integrate the signup process into using the site for the first time. How I'd implement it for a bugtracker:

    Box for your new bug title. Box for your new bug text. Box for your email address. Submit button.

    When you hit submit, one of those nice CSS-powered dialog boxes (such as use.perl is now using for login) appears and says "We haven't seen you before, please enter a password to log in next time." You enter a password and click the button. Boom, you have a user account. It's up to you if you ever use it again, but the effort of getting it is minimized.
