Can you automatically set a category for a new question?

Is it possible to have the category field default to something when a user posts a new question? For example, if a user is viewing the "Hardware" category and they post a new question, I would like it to default to the "Hardware" category. But if they are viewing the "Software" category, it should default to that.

As it is, a user could be viewing one category, and if they don't pick a category on the "ask a question" form then it will default to no category.

In my initial testing of the plugin I have had my QA testers report that their questions were not showing up. It turned out they just weren't selecting a category. If a user is viewing a category it would be intuitive for the question to go in that category.
