    I love the new provider pattern and Login Controls for ASP.NET 2.0, but whats up with the profile provider?? Its a great idea and all, but jamming a whole bunch of different data types into one field, that's bad database design! They should have their own columns.

    It also makes it harder to query and index...

    So I guess my only option is to code my own MembershipProvider - not the end of the world, but it kinda defeats the purpose of the ProfileProvider
