Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have tried to un-associate all my account.

However the next time I log into any site I get.

“n” accounts automatically been associated

I wish to use a single OpenID for ease, however I don’t wish someone to be able to find me on a none work related site from my profile on a work related site. This is just not good for my “personal branding”.

I have set up some Stack Exchange sites to use a 2nd email address and my nick name. This shorts out the Gravatar, but does not stop Stack Exchange from trying to associate all of my accounts.

Due to auto-association rules, this is no longer possible unless you use two different OpenIDs.

Please explain the point of OpenId if I need to have many different OpenId accounts… – Ian Ringrose Jul 27 '10 at 9:15
Evan after I have added a new openid to my account on a server exchange site, it is not claer how to remove the other OpenId – Ian Ringrose Jul 27 '10 at 9:20
How difficult would it be to simply have a boolean 'hidden' associated with each associations, which won't show it on the public page? It will still be associated, but won't show. And it won't auto-associate, since it's already associated. – falstro Jul 27 '10 at 9:28
@Roe, that would be a lot better then nothing but will not let you associate good of sites, e.g. DIY with Gardening and Stackoverflow with Serverfault – Ian Ringrose Jul 27 '10 at 9:39
@Ian; well it would. Since the bools would be associated with each site (warning: overuse of the word 'associate') ;) so DIY would hide all by Gardening and SO would hide DIY and Garderning, and so on. It'd take some work, but I guess most people don't care if they're associated, so they won't be bothered. – falstro Jul 27 '10 at 9:51
