register to search?
It may just be the forum script that you run, but I have to say that I was very dissappointed and frustrated to see that I had to register just to search through your forums. I'm not sure why this would have to be the case, especially since you may get many people coming through the forums as casual browsers who don't intend to actually post anything.
It would really be great if people could just search without having to go through the registration process(despite how easy it is). It might help keep the size of your user database down, as I will probably never post again but am now taking up a spot. Hopefully it's not just a ploy to get my email address so you can send me a bunch of spam. I didn't think this was the case or I wouldn't have registered, but that made me wonder even more why it was necessary, if not for that. Anyways, just thought I'd mention it because it kinda bugged me. Thanks for the site and all the great info!
