Why does Fedora Discussion require login to see the contents unlike Ask Fedora?

In the context of migrating Ask Fedora to the Fedora Discussion: Ask Fedora site: major changes coming soon! - Ask Fedora, I noticed that the Fedora Discussion requires the login to see the contents, while Ask Fedora doesn’t.

Why does Fedora Discussion require a login to see the contents?

I think people want to “see” the contents without login. Thinking about the use case: search for something in a search engine, and find Fedora discussion on the result of the search engine. Then click and the login is required.

Note that the DuckDuckGo can list threads on Fedora Discussion on their search result.

E.g. See Fedora Discussion Wayland site:discussion.fedoraproject.org at DuckDuckGo .

Uh, it shouldn’t. Hold on…

This should be fixed now. Looks like a setting got inadvertently flipped, and I didn’t notice since I was logged in. Thanks for letting me know!
