I can log in with OpenID, but I am having problems logging out. Whenever I open Stack Overflow, a message appears on the top of my screen saying:

Stack Overflow requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load

I guess this is due to restrictions in my office network. Can I access my Stack Overflow accounts without external JavaScript? Is there any basic HTML version of Stack Overflow that can be used in these circumstances?

Given you have "problems logging in and logging out": so you actually can log in? – Arjan Dec 7 '11 at 13:27
yes i was able to log in with open Id but couldn't log out.I'll appreciate if i am able to log in and out normally. – Ankit Dec 12 '11 at 10:13

I'd bet the blocked javascript in this case is the "clear global login" script from

All it does is remove a key from localStorage under the domain. You can do that manually, if you want.

Alternatively, you can disable global auth altogether by blocking the domain, or disabling javascript. Neither experience is stellar, honestly, but it's what a "HTML-only" version of Stack Overflow would be doing so... yeah.

Hmm no, that message is the "there's no jQuery" warning. – balpha Dec 12 '11 at 19:47
