So how do someone who avoids the social media systems and avoids using
other domain email accounts get signed in or signed up?

the particular problem with AskBot was that the e-mail subscription is not based on double opt-in. However, this is a legal requirement in Germany and many other countries. Otherwise we would be subject to an expensive cease and desist letter.

As a workaround, we only enabled signup via OpenID, until AskBot improves this, or we can develop our own authentication mechanism.

I agree this is tedious and annoying, however, from a legal POV, we - sadly - have no other choice at the moment.
