I just had to log in again even though I was already in the Fora.

Also:

What is this new thing below?

"In order to verify that you are a human and not a spam bot, please enter the answer into the following box below based on the instructions contained in the graphic."

Steve,

Did you do something like clearing cookies in your web browser? That's most often why one ends up being logged out of things one did not intentionally log out of.

The thing you ran into is most often called a Captcha and it's purpose is already outlined in the instruction. The thing is a graphic, that is, a picture, and spambots cannot read the text content presented in a picture, so are not able to enter the requested text string to gain access to a forum account. This is common practice across many websites, and particularly on those most concerned about only "real people" logging in rather than automated processes impersonating humans, most often to flood a site with spam.
