I gotta ask the question.... What happens if a would be spammer decided to get an ID and use that to login. What would stop them from basically spamming your site, if the site admin doesn't have other safe guards in place. IE Captcha, SLV, Spam-X, etc....

To quote from the OpenID site:

What about trust?

This is not a trust system. Trust requires identity first.

What about spam?

Again, this is not a trust system.

In Geeklog, you can still ban the user. At which point you still have the same problem as with spammers creating new accounts all the time.

So, OpenID is only a hurdle, not a solution.

Forgot to add: The main benefit, of course, is that you don't have to create a new account for every site you want to post at. OpenID has been designed for this problem, not as a means of spam protection.

Please don`t forget this feature request:

It would be so easy to ease logging-in within Geeklog. :pray:
