My attempt to join GMF cold, as someone not already having an io

So I can understand the confusion if someone is trying to join a group,
but doesn't understand that they can subscribe without a password, since
it states when clicking the "join this group" button that they "must log
in below" and lists Email address and password.

You stepped right into an issue that caused a rather lengthy thread or two about the join process. I believe that's part of what Mark's intending to fix in his early 2016 roadmap.

As things stand, the way to join email-only is to use the email +subscribe command. The web interface assumes you want access to the group's members-only web pages (for which a password is required).
