Often one just needs to quickly find the answer to a problem on geonet and logging in shouldn't be required. That is the way the Esri help works which makes it easy to use by removing a barrier to entry. Please match the user experience on many other forum sites and allow anonymous read access, and require a login for posting or comments. To find info on geonet the easiest way is to do a google search and then click on the cached link to see the content - a method that does not require a login. Preferably we could just go to geonet and search anonymously.
