Also, if the forum has always been password protected, why isn't it
password protected anymore once Joop was told how bad his locking the
forum was making him look?

Let's be clear about this.
In order for the Authorization Required feature to work, which is what
was happening when the forum was inaccessible, one must CREATE a file
called .htaccess in the directory the forum was hosted from, and in
that file they must include the following lines:
AuthName "A Name of the Website Area"
There is no way that anyone can claim this was "accidentally" done
with any credibility.
It is not a simple configuration option that you could easily and
accidentally turn on.
