Reply button for not-yet-members?

If someone happens across a timeline post, ever more likely with @sod’s excellent Conversation on plugin to facilitate more replies, this is the view they see:

I wonder if it would better serve the visitor (and!) if the standard Reply button was on each post. Right now there’s no indication that they even could join the conversation if they wanted to. If they weren’t signed in, that button could lead them to an explainer that a free account lets them reply, or paid one to write their own blog posts.

This is a great point. We should have a special “not signed in” view especially for the conversation. Maybe a custom header with “Sign up or sign in to reply” or something similar.
