We're going in circles here.

How do you populate the list?

I only see Google and Yahoo - your list is woefully incomplete.

Foreseeing (with a touch of deja vu) our next step in this cycle, how 
do we avoid confusing the user with a long list of OP's, most of 
which they will be uninterested in using, and many of which they may 
have never heard of?


That's one of the XSS links Chris Messina posted. Read down through 
the image of a "bird-shot" approach. We don't want users to be lost 
in a sea of icons, hunting down the only one they find familiar.
