I don't think there's any intentional discrimination here. Based on my
understanding of the situation, TDF has a very small Infrastructure/IT
team for the size of the demands heaped upon it. If we'd had to roll
our own double-opt-in system for Askbot, it might have taken months
more to get the Ask site up and running, so I support the decision to
go with OpenID if that was the fastest option to get something up and

very well explained - indeed, that was the problem. Per se, AskBot did not provide the required double opt-in, so we decided for social networks only in order to roll it out.


I know that there was no "real" discrimination here, but I know many people in my building alone that would call it that and would be so against LO for doing that. So I had to bring that "touchy" subject. How many business users would want to use a social media sign in for their business communications? I know few local ones that really think it is a good idea.

There needs to be some "good" way to get in without a social media or Google type of account.

I do not use social media, Google mail, Yahoo mail, and the otherslisted. There are at least20 people, at my last count, in my building that hate social media and the listed mail systems for the problems with security that they keep seeing in the news sources. I just do not have the time to deal with all of these.

would there be any good way for someone with just an email account to get signed up with the Ask LO system.
