When I go to Login and it says "I don't have an account" it doesn't allow me to register

I had to ask a question in order to register. So I answered a question with a question and had to create a new question, when what I really wanted to do was to answer a question which was already there.

Is this a bug or is it just counter-intuitive?

Either way I couldn't register without asking a question.

I would have thought that if you click on "I don't have an account" on the login page that it would take you to a registration page.

Looks like you were able to register to ask this question! We just want users to register through the ask a question workflow instead of registering for real need to do so.
