It does. If you are not logged in, Username and Password boxes are added to the reply and post screens.

Poorly written HTML standards, actually. TEXTAREA tags must be given a specific height and width. There is no 100% like tables have (that I know of, anyway). I may reduce the default width to 60 at some point. In the mean time, if you do use cookies, you can set the width and height in your profile.
