    Most forums don't allow unregistered users to post i don't know why this one does. the quality of posts from guests are low and it allows handlejacking. should guest posts be turned off?

    If post using a name that's already been registered, it won't go through so handlejacking should not be a concern if you are registered.

    We keep guests posting enabled to lower the barrier for participation. Some users also want more anonymity and don't want all their posts to be tied to one account.

    I think allowing guests to post is good for the forum. Some people stumbles upon the forum while googling a certain subject or topic. Some would just want to leave a quick comment.

    Guest posting is great for some forums to attract new people, but I don't think even guest posting can save this dump.
