Duncan, I recall that was said to be a problem with some MSFT policy on storing user info ?? am i confused or??
I seem to recall a bit about "we no longer store the login and email as that would violate [??????] terms .... " or something like that.
You remember correctly, that was the reason behind moving to Live ID, to avoid making your email the identifying factor for a new account on C9.
It is more about it being optional *and* making sure our host is cleared to handle that type of data. Using it for notifications, not login, makes it optional and our vendor (who also handles
www.asp.net and others) already has experience dealing with this type of information.
