Signing your comments on talk pages helps other users follow the flow of the discussion. If you haven't [[Special:Userlogin|logged in or registered]] to get a username, your computer's [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_address IP address] is used instead (such users and their comments are known as "anonymous", in wiki lingo).

Attempting to keep your IP address hidden by not signing your comments is futile because this information will appear in the page's [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Page_history edit history], anyway. The only sure way to prevent your IP address from being made public is to register and always log in. Note that a small number of [[Project:Administrators|powerful users]] will still be able to gain access to your IP address should it be necessary. We should soon have a [[Project:Privacy policy|privacy policy]] that will explain all of this in more detail.
