It’s probably done as a counter-measure against spambots


#3

I believe its a bug.

thx for the answer!
i hope you let someone investigatee it so that it can be fixed.

Hope it is a bug that gets fixed. Main thing is linking directly to some post to non-members is now a hassle to view tech answers, post with pictures/ideas, etc… Most people just won’t setup an account to view a post a single post.

Also I’m not sure how just viewing a post as a non registered user would be a counter measure against bots. So I have to believe it’s a bug issue that will hopefully get solved soon.
