I would like to know how to force users to register before they can ask a question, the current setup seems like an open invite to spam.

Yes, there are 3 options in the admin panel, to require login for asking a question, answer or comment respectively. Also beta 3 will have an option to require anonymous users to complete a CAPTCHA before posting.
Suggestion: have those options on by default, there is potential for a new site to install the software and quickly get a whole load of spam. Or, since the user has to put in their email, send them a link to validate the address.
What are the 3 options in the admin panel in details?
Admin --->Permissions--->Asking questions, Answering Questions, Adding comments
