its not really an issue on my computer as i can stay logged in, and if im not then my details are already saved in it so its one click away from signing in. but a lot of people dont have that on their system or device, and i know it'd annoy me too. the main issue though is the prevention of traffic, i'd never sign up to a forum you have to sign up to read first, why go through the usual tedious sign up form and questions to get access to a dead forum. people need to be able to see how active we are and the topics which are discussed. we're losing A LOT of potential new members, as well as probably pushing away a few older ones.
