Why must one log in to view attachments?

Why is it that attached files may not be viewed until a user is logged in?

Lots of times throughout the day, I'll connect as a guest and browse the topics looking for interesting posts, without going to the additional effort of logging in.

As my nature is to make quick checks, I sometimes don't even look at attachments because of the additional effort of going through the login process.

Other forum sites allow guests to view attachments, http://forums.parallax.com/forums, for example.

Why doesn't this site ?

My theory is it is a default setting. I'll be waiting with interest for the real answer.
