I am an English teacher, born in Scotland but I have been living in China since 2006. In my spare time I build websites and write articles about China. I am also a keen travel photographer and contributor to Getty Images stock library.

comment Does OpenID expose your email address to websites?
Likewise. I googled for quite some time and came up blank. I would recommend you go with my previous suggestion, if you worry about privacy, and create a new openID that contains no personal details, and use that everywhere.

Though Twitter isn't listed on Stackexchange websites for login, it can be used. Click on the "more options" link under the openID logos and a text box appears where you can enter the URI of the OpenID you wish to use.

comment Does OpenID expose your email address to websites?
An open ID provider can only expose whatever info you have entered on the registration form. You can make a new OpenID at myopenid.com/signup using just a username and password. The email address is optional (though without one password recovery might be difficult.) If you don't enter your email and name on the OpenID provider website then it won't be made public to other sites.

comment Does OpenID expose your email address to websites?
I think this question belongs here because it deals with a question that the user or OpenID might ask rather than the developer of an OpenID application.

comment Why does live.com limit passwords to 16 characters?
I've seen this max limit of 16 chars on other sites too. If the password is stored hashed then it should be the same size in the database no matter what the real password is, so why limit? I hope it's not because they are storing the passwords unhashed and 16 chars is the size of the database field. I really hope not.

No good. This isn't a local playlist. It's a youtube playlist on youtube.com.
