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 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
