You don't -- it's infinite recursion. We've trapped you here FOREVER! – Mehrdad Mar 5 '11 at 6:33
logout on the account you're using associated with it, like gmail for instance. – yoda Mar 5 '11 at 6:33
@yoda That is incorrect. OpenID does not connect the provider's login cookie with the site's login cookie. – waiwai933 Mar 5 '11 at 6:35
@waiwai933: works for me :) – yoda Mar 5 '11 at 6:37

To log out, hover your mouse over your name at the top, wait for the popup to show, click on "log out" at the top, and then on "Log out Everywhere" on the page that comes up.

But wait! Accept this answer first! :P

Your image is broken, but when I tried to fix it, I saw that it was outdated. There's no need for this answer anymore, since Michael Mrozek posted a newer one. – Pops Sep 29 '11 at 14:26

The answers on this are a bit out of date now. As of 11 March there is a popup when you mouseover your name in the top bar; the logout link appears in that box:
