I started this site as a logged-in-only community, not because I wanted to create a walled garden, but because at the beginning of the pandemic I thought a very small, and essentially “private” group would be the best way for us to support one another during these difficult times.
Should we reconsider this policy?
Note that this is a separate question from whether registration should have an “approval” or “invite” step. I think that’s a reasonable policy for the time being, since it has kept the site free of trolling, and free of people without any genuine interest in documentation.
