I asked a question at superuser, and a bunch of comments ensued trying to help me. Then a suggestion popped up to move the discussion to chat. That sounds fine, so I clicked it. But now I have to log in comment. The FAQ says if I'm logged in in superuser, then I'm logged in in chat. But no. The FAQ also says I need 20 reputation points to contribute, but I only have 13. When I try to log in using Google (which is how I originally logged in) it tries to create a new account. Is the lack of sufficient reputation the reason why it won't let me log in?
This is chrome. I also tried IE. It surprised me that I was already logged in there. But the same thing happened when I moved to chat.
It seems impolite to move a conversation to chat when the OP can no longer contribute to the chat.
