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

Compare this user's associated accounts with this user's associated accounts. The former includes a "No accounts matching this OpenID" message similar to what an individual user might find on their own account. The latter shows no such messages for the other sites.

The inconsistency of the message implies that in at least one of those cases, there is an account matching that OpenID that isn't associated. But if the user didn't want to associate accounts (and we are in fact allowed to manually do so), then why should Stack Overflow hint at the existence of sister accounts? I've spotted both kinds of display more than once, so neither version is limited to a single user.

Showing no message probably looks nicer.

I've just checked the accounts you link to and it looks like this has been implemented. – ChrisF Jun 14 '10 at 19:15
@ChrisF That's because Tony updated his associations. I've cleared my association with Server Fault, it should be if you view any of my non-SF accounts. I've changed the link now. – Grace Note Jun 14 '10 at 19:29
And if, for whatever reason (I can't see because I can't log out on this machine), the meta profile isn't showing the desired undesired behavior, then my Super User profile definitely does! – Grace Note Jun 14 '10 at 19:35

Packaged alongside the grid account display came the resolution of this bug. Bumping for [status-completed] and to rid this from the unanswered tab.
