I was just browsing through the proposals and I wanted to check out actual Q&As on Retrocomputing, now in beta. So I clicked on the Visit the site now! link (same URL as the typical Visit! button, the URL appears correct).
To my surprise I ended up redirected to the site's joining page where I'm informed that I'm about to create a new account on the site.
Is this behaviour intentional? Am I not allowed to visit the site (even in beta) to decide if I want to join before actually joining? Personally I find that rather repelling, which doesn't sound (to me at least) like something desired...
Am I missing something?
