Meta Discourse now for logged in users only?

Is this a bug or intentional? I tried browsing in meta from different workstation.

We are excited to have you participate in Discourse Meta. Please create an account or login to continue.

On other hand, I tried to login using my account [fb/gmail], Got this:

Your account has not been approved by a moderator yet. You will receive an email when it is approved.

FYI. thanks

Oops, yeah, we’re looking into this.

We removed the support for the “site-wide password” and it looks like this is the side-effect.

Very very strange, no idea how the login_required setting was set to true.

Which does bring up a point, we should have an audit trail on site settings, some changes there can really cause much pain.
