So to fix this we added the "get connected" feature. Basically it's a page after the initial login where people can open a session to all their social networks and provide all their frequent email addresses. This way they can login with any of these. This helped a lot.

The Stack Exchange network has a similar feature. Each user can associate a Facebook account, an e-mail address and password, and multiple OpenID identifiers (Google, AOL, Ubuntu, etc.) to his Stack Exchange user account. The one thing I'm surprised they don't support is Twitter login.

The monkey thing is only racist if a white person calls a black person a "monkey".

However, this incident has North Korea comparing Obama to a monkey, so it can't be racist. Many people here in the US believe it's impossible for non-white people to be racist.

From what I hear, the movie is crap anyway, so Sony is likely making more money off of it because of all the hype and press surrounding it. (They're selling it as pay-per-view on their own website.) The whole incident may have even been orchestrated by Sony as a giant publicity scheme, who knows.

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.
