There might be a funny bug in stackoverflow. When I want to log-out, I am always being obliged to delete my browser's history, at every turn, in order to login with another account. When I press log-out button, it is logging out. But when I press the log-in button, It is always log in my previous account which I've just logged out. Is it a bug or just my browser's fault? (I don't save passwords or cookies in my browser) Thanks...

EDIT : I want the logout button forwards me to the OpenID log out page to confirm. then I could really log out instead of being obliged to delete my browser's history within..

This is how OpenID works, you are still logged into your OpenID provider. – Nick Craver Mar 9 '12 at 15:27
Then, log out button goes for nothing. – aphex Mar 9 '12 at 15:28
This request should be changed to "Remove the logout button as it doesn't do what it says on the tin." – NotMe Mar 9 '12 at 15:30
@ChrisLively It would be unmerciless cuz I want a logout button which is really be able to log out :) – aphex Mar 9 '12 at 15:33
An alternate, but better request, then would be: Change the Logout button so it forwards people to the openid logout page to confirm. – NotMe Mar 9 '12 at 15:34
Though this does raise the issue of why you want to log in with another account. Why do you have more than one account on Stack Overflow? – ChrisF Mar 9 '12 at 15:56
I wanted to illustrate the situation by saying another account. Another account is not mine, might be my friend's. problem? – aphex Mar 9 '12 at 15:58
@aphex - If you personally don't have multiple accounts then it's not a problem. – ChrisF Mar 9 '12 at 16:11
Lol, thanks for outing yourself. – Won't Mar 9 '12 at 16:25
Dear all, I have problems making the OpenID login work properly with my sockpuppet accounts. Therefore, I have a feature request to make logging in and out easier so that I can use my sockpuppets more easily to upvote my other posts that haven't received enough attention. Thanks for your help! – Cody Gray Mar 9 '12 at 17:06
I think this is a reasonable request. I like to login from other people's computers when I'm visiting, and since I participate in quite a few SE sites, I have to log out of every one of them individually or going back to the login screen will just login automatically again. – Rachel Mar 9 '12 at 18:19
I also love how you say it "might be" your friend's account. – timothymh Mar 11 '12 at 2:39
