Yes, I could make the forum member-only, BUT that would also carry one other unwanted effect. If every person that wanted to ask a simple short question or leave a comment had to register, we would have thousands of inactive members now. I wish to avoid this. I'd rather have a small active member base, than a large one with only a few people actually being active.
Good point. I have never looked at it that way.
