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

I experienced some weird behaviour when I tried to login to stackoverflow.com, it gives me an error that repeats after I refresh the page and the login screen shows up again. This traps me in a cycle.

Eventually, it went through and I finally managed to log in.

What is going on?

myopenid is only minimally supported by JanRain, so I recommend adding another email / provider to your account -- remember, we now support an unlimited number of logins per account -- so that you're covered in any case.

It is not unheard of for there to be occasional hiccups in their service, and I believe it is Amazon EC backed, so any Amazon EC outages can affect them as well.
