[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Forbid anonymous comments for notes (#1543)

While I believe it has been suggested before, just to re-iterate: we could copy Wikipedias pseudo-anonymous approach here and store and display the IPv4/v6 address in lieu of a user name. This might work as a bit of a deterrent to not all too clued up spammers that I suspect is what we are seeing. 

The downside is that we would need to have specific ToU for the Notes subsystem and that it could legally be problematic from a privacy pov (naturally as deep pocketed WMF has a vested interest in the system it is likely that we would get support if it ever came to real trouble).
