I am wondering about how many people that download programs from CodePlex actually have a user account.  I suspect that many people will use an application without ever becoming a member and it would be good if such people could rate releases.  This is due to the large number of stable releases on this site which are not rated but have several hundred downloads.

I think being prompted to sign in will put people off rating a project.  I know sites like SourceForge have an anonymous rating function and I think it is important because ratings will attract people to download (or not).
