Instead, a "sign in" link is shown in place of the "reply" link.
Yes, but the message text area is still there and I've been known to start typing before checking the button to see if it's a Post or SignIn. Either removing the message text area or allowing users to type and sign in simultaneously would be a nicer approach.

Most members come here to report bugs, so I default to that message type.
But that's what I'm saying. The default I see is Suggestion, not Bug. Making it Bug should be the default.
Hmmmm! It must have been a fluke then because I did click Reply and only after I started typing did I see that I wasn't logged in. It's possible that I was logged in and somehow got logged out between clicking on Reply and the Reply page coming up.
Hi CP Team,
In a few recent articles I can see multiple spams posted by members an example.
So I just thought cant we put some heavy restrictions like multiple authentication(if post contains some URLs, a $, shipping,price,paypal etc), account suspension or barring from post for a few days (In case post is "reported[Abusive spam]").
Oh for a minute there I thought you had a solution, not just a random suggestion!
I do believe the hamsters are doing a reasonable job of eliminating the spam, it is not possible to asses the content of the post reliably. At least I can think of many legitimate subjects which that would trigger your onerous authentication. This would only act to irritate the very people who are trying to contribute to the site.
I know I have a standing order for telepathic software but have achieved it yet!
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
These articles\blog\Tip were published within the same timeframe, and I coomentet on some minor details that should be fixed. However I dont find the comment very useful now that the article is publishe. Im terrible sorry for the inconvinience, and I promis to not do it again
PS. I would delete them myself, but I dont have permission to delete all the replies from other people.
