I hate OpenID and I think its a crazy idea to centralize all your security and identity with one provider. OpenID is like a passport, and sites like stackoverflow and this blog are like walmarts and dollarstores. I shouldn't have to show my ultimate passport ID for the most trivial transactions (buying a bag of chips, for eg). Jeff, listen to the people, don't be arrogant and please offer local passwords. You sound like google when they didn't want to add a Delete button to gmail because they thought they knew better than their users. Some people just aren't interested in maintaining a consistent, proper and centralized on-line identity, especially not with sites they use very very occasionally (like stackoverflow, for eg). Posted via the openid host at http://openid.aliz.es/ - whoever made that is my hero of the day.
