Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The Stack Exchange Network Profile/Accounts links should be made optional

I realized that anybody can see the list of Stack Exchange sites I currently use, read the questions I've asked, etc. I don't want people on to see that I am a member of, and/or that I've asked this stupid question there, etc. Is there a way to avoid this? I didn't see a relevant profile setting, am I missing something?

This is a somewhat major issue for me, I will open different accounts for different sites if there is no way to get around this, but I think this really shouldn't be needed. I don't think this privacy decision should be made on our behalf by the StackExchange network.

In December 2010: you'll have to create a new OpenID for every site you visit, and make sure they have no email string in common. Maybe things have changed though... – Arjan Sep 30 '11 at 22:13

You CAN login with an unknown OpenID with unknown email to specific site , therefore it won't be associated with your other accounts.
