Can we do away with the anti-pattern of presenting a huge box that looks like a login, but is "Create Account" with a little tiny link that says, "Already a member? Sign in here."

Can we at least recognize that if I entered my valid credentials in the "Create Account" box you can just log me in.

I really hate it when a business treats the paying customer as a second-rate citizen and crafts their landing page with only potential customers in mind.

@CarlCravens Strava does this every time it logs me out.

It only asks for a username and password (where it later asks for repeated password). If there were two password boxes then I'd instantly see it's a signup... any time a button labeled Sign In our any variation thereof leads instead to a create an account dialog, a manager needs smacked up the back of the head.
