We have been told by OpenID supporters that OpenID will unite the way we logging in. From the OpenID website, it says: > OpenID eliminates the need for multiple usernames across different websites, simplifying your online experience. Ok, I agree with the first part but today I'm not sure about the __simplifying your online experience__ anymore. The story started when I want to vote [SourceForge Comunity Choice Award 2008](http://sourceforge.net/community/cca08) ([Blognone news](http://www.blognone.com/node/8304)). These are my steps to logging in and vote. Let the pictures explain themselves. One: Start with choosing OpenID instead of creating new account. Two: Confirm with your OpenID provider. Three: Create new account again. (Why I need this?) Four: Filling endless fields. (Why they want this?) Five: Confirm your email again. (Did I just confirm my ID?) Do I need to do these steps just for a simple voting? Even if I am a OpenID supporter, I then get a lot of bad impression with sourceforge OpenID implementation. It will ruin the image of OpenID in longer term. SourceForge, please fix it.
