[Mediawiki-l] Forbidding anonymous edits in MediaWiki?

I'd like to know if it's possible under the current system to require 
contributors to register a user account before they may make edits to 
any pages.  I realize that this isn't exactly in the spirit of the wiki 
system, but we've had a problem with a user lately who hasn't been 
paying attention to our repeated requests to follow the rules.  One of 
the options we'd like to consider is requiring contributors to register 

But, is that possible using the current software?  How could I set that 
up?  I've taken a look at DefaultSettings.php, and I see the variable 
$wgWhitelistEdit and the array $wgWhitelistAccount, and I was wondering 
if those have anything to do with what I'm looking for.
