One of the comments[1] to Sokullu and McManus' original post called for
OpenID sites to accept greater privacy guarantees than currently provided.

Specifically, the commenter is concerned that information about the
frequency of authentication at various sites. Stoicho asks: "How can you
trust a 3rd party [who] sees how frequent your users logged in, how many
users your application has?"

Stoicho asks that sites make the following pledge: Is this reasonable?

"WE WILL NEVER EVER NEVER EVER GATHER ANY INFORMATION, REGARTHLESS HOW MANY,
OR HOW FREQUENT YOUR APPLICATION USERS USED THEIR OPENID ACCOUNTS."
