     It could be they thought you needed to register even to read posts. This is actually the case on some forums.
     I, too, have joined forums or mailing lists, probably intending to post, but for various reasons never have done so - nor cancelled my membership, because I might still be interested in reading, if not posting - and I wouldn't want to rule out the possibility of posting. I think this sort of thing happens all the time.

You don't know if there are 'hidden' members-only areas until you've registered.

You may register meaning to post, get cold feet and cancel your post.

You may register to get that feeling of belonging to a forum, although being one of the planet's quiet people, rarely if ever post.
