Hi, Hans. Sorry that you found the registration annoying. We felt it was 
important that people use their real identities, and having a social 
sign-in was the easiest way to encourage this. While this choice 
certainly turns off some people, we felt it would facilitate a healthier 
community for the people who did chose to sign up. So thank you for 
choosing to register, and I hope you enjoy the platform.
