Creating forum topics now requires an account

In the ongoing saga of fighting spam, the captcha (math question) for comments seems to protect the site's comments from spammers, but it doesn't work for forum posts. So until it does, I have reluctantly disabled anonymous forum posting.

So, if you don't have an account, you can still comment on an existing forum topic, but you can only create a new topic if you first log in or create an account. Which is really easy to do!
