For a little while longer, it's the way the site is configured. Since the Speakeasy was already in place when we did the site redesign, we wanted to avoid having an adverse impact on the SE community when we brought up the new site. That meant we couldn't just zap the forum or load it into something that's already integrated with our content management system. The result is that we have two completely separate login systems.
What I'm working on now is software to integrate the two login systems, so that logging in to one automatically logs you in to the other. For existing users, that means a system to link a Speakeasy account to a pw.org account. I looked at how many users I could do automatically, but the only thing I have to go on is matching e-mail addresses, and that didn't come up with many matches.
It will probably be a matter of logging into pw.org, going to your My P&W page, and then entering your Speakeasy user name and password into a form that links the two.
