I checked the docs for my Google OpenID and presto whamo, I have my OpenID all set to go. Next, I decided that Facebook would be my first RP. So, after digging around on the web for a few minutes I found some instructions on how to do that. It's under Settings | Linked accounts. So easy.
So, I click on "Add" and up comes a list. There's Google, Yahoo and a bunch of others, so I pick OpenID and click "Link New Account" and Google comes up to verify that I am cool with the linkage. Nice. I check the list and Facebook wants my email address, cool, my Language, okay, makes sense and ... what... what's that... my Contacts? Facebook wants my Contacts List!?
There is no option for me to just do authentication with Facebook using my Google account so I won't use my Google account. I am disappointed in Facebook (but not surprised).
Plan B. Looking for a nice OpenID provider that has nothing else to offer but my ID. :-)

Oh, and if you don't already know, I am using WordPress (for now).

I was recently hit with spam on this site so have finally upgraded to the latest and greatest version of WordPress.... it cost me nothing and I learned a cool technique for checking for blog spam... if there are more than two unique URL links in a post, it's probably spam so it gets held. Simple. I like it.
