users will then have to click the login link, then fill (or Autofill) the form and then again click the login button.
this will decrease my actual productive time on the forum, right?
and we can always use ajax to hide/show the login form on the top. eg. Twitter.
In fact, considering our new leaner/cleaner campaign: I like the idea of "log in / register" being one link to a page where one can log in or register.
I think the key to not having to do it very often is the whole "stay logged in" thing.
I too, agreed that removing the form my be the better idea.
However, playing devil's advocate for a moment... the OP complaint was about the annoyance of a particular feature, and the solution was the removal of the feature altogether. Not exactly good incentive to report future annoyances.

Would bookmarking the actual login page help with this? Then no scrolling would be required at all when you start out.
