Etsy Sign-In Confusion

Some people had been contacting me about not wanting to join Facebook in order to buy my items at Etsy.  For the life of me I could not figure out why they thought they had to be on Facebook until I tried to login to Etsy and saw this screen (I have a different screen I use to login).  The first screen gives a person two ways to login - through Facebook OR using their Etsy login info.  This screen is for people who already have Etsy accounts.

It's not confusing to me, but I can see how it can be to some people.  Users don't have to sign into a Facebook account in order to buy on Etsy, but they do have to have an Etsy account, which means they would have to click on the Etsy Register tab:

I hope this clears up the confusion.
