my 2 cents worth on OpenID ... bad idea ...
if a site supports it ... so be it
but also, have a unique site only login
because it is not secure to trust one provider
with one's password ... it's a pain but better
to have many unique passwords ... imagine
if someone successfully hacks an OpenID
site ... scary thought ... simple consequences
could be spam ... if OpenID user uses same
password for online banking ... ????

anyway ... that's my 2 cents worth

one site that uses OpenID suggested
I just make through away unique ids ...
for me, that does not work ... I do not
need to hide ... so I have same id and
different passwords ... works for me.

OpenID is delegation of far too much trust to a security void.
