As I mentioned back in the day, if you're logged in to this site and you post a comment, it will have a MicroID attached to it so you can claim ownership of it. Seems like there's a potential privacy issue with MicroIDs, but only if email addresses are used in generating the MicroID. Since this site uses OpenID as an authentication mechanism and the generated MicroIDs are http+http rather than mailto+http, it's not vulnerable to the privacy issue described. Just another reason why OpenID kicks ass. :)
