Login Screen is Required To Soon

I was trying to show my strategy to a friend today and after about 5-10 seconds the website would require him to make an account to see anything else. He found that annoying and so did I. I realize we want to get people to sign up and create an account, but to me it seems that it would be better to not make them go through the hassle of creating an account after looking at one page for 5 seconds. I think they should be able to explore strategies a bit more before having to make an account and set up a password. Just a thought. If the current way is better at converting new people to account holders then great, but if I was a new potential user I would want to browse more without giving out my email.
