Possible to require registration before posting?

Question

So, I don't know why this annoys me as much as it does, but seeing people post guest request threads as guests is annoying... lol. Is there a way that registration is a mandatory step before one can post? I know I'm not the only one annoyed by this...

No one should be able to post a thread without creating an account first. However,  digging through the site settings it seems in one of the more recent updates the permissions on the "guest" group got changed for the guest request threads to allow folks to post there.

I suspect what happened there was that somewhere in the update code it saw an active thread for "guests" and thought that was where guest accounts could post.  

Either way I've closed that door now.

@MattTheMinion Awesome. Thank you... Sadly the current Guest Request thread for 2019 was started by a glitchy "guest" user " Guest Beau Murphy" I believe and it's got a crap ton of posts, but I'm glad I wasn't going crazy... lol.
