Short, concise description of the idea

Full description of the idea
The page clearly shows the sites that the LiveJournal user trusts to use OpenID. Adding partner sites to the list would give user more control over their online privacy. Let the trusted websites to use OpenID by default but at the same time user should have an option of turning off OpenID for partner websites.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Clear list of websites that have user's OpenID
  • User will have full control over their OpenID use
  • Decrease speculations on breach of privacy

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • No obvious drawback for the user

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Implement it the same way it's done for all the other websites with only difference that partner sites will be "trusted" by default and will have to be changed by user.
