This is a confusing mess of roles ATM.

You just pointed out a flaw in the design of the security.

The roles that the Guest user has are not copied (or linked) to new users.

It is quite possible for new users to have *LESS* permission than a
guest (anonymous) user!

I just discussed this with my partner in security crime, Jesse
McConnell, and we are working on a solution to this oversight.
