Cannot Look at sites content without logged in

Probably the wrong place to post this, but I have noticed recently that I am unable to log on into the site without being logged in with my account. It's not that that is really a huge problem with me, but wouldn't that result in much less people viewing the content due to them not being able to view and download it? Just wondering if this was done on purpose or if no one has noticed until now. It could also just be me, so i was just wondering also if that is for everyone else.

You're not the first one to notice this. I think the admins decided to do this in order to keep the traffic of the site manageable. Limit the amount of leechers/guests hogging bandwidth. Also, it encourages people to sign up, which in turn lowers the barrier of new users getting involved in the discussion.
