Annoying CLI Bug

I was setting up a Photon (actually just changing the Wifi Creds)

Ran particle setup. It then tells me I am logged in, and asks me if I want to use this credentials. Which look fine.

Then this comes:

! PROTIP: There was a network error while connecting to the cloud…
! PROTIP: We need an active internet connection to successfully complete setup.
! PROTIP: Are you currently connected to the internet? Please double-check and try again.

The problem? I did not run particle login first. Seriously people, if the problem is a login issue, dont give such a dumb error! What about “You are not logged in, please login first” Or something like that. Is it so hard?

That took me an hour to resolve!

Fair point, but less sarcasm would be nice too.
