since I am aware that they came with similar names and such,I think I am in suspicion that there's a gateway to let them in,I wish there's no need for these.I may have been offensive on this,but it's for our own good,we don't use these to get in.any mods in objection,please let me know.

most likely, that rule would just get even more people whining. I do agree that we could do without those alternate log in options though.

I don't exactly know why we have this in the first place before you would jump to the action,it's like take a shortcut,but it would be a bad route. and since it's highly unnecessary to take the path,I would like this serious concern to be sent straight to either DigitalDame or LarkAnderson about this alternative "log-in route"

who cares,we disliked Google+ and Face"palm"book.I'm not sure about Twitter,but I got a feeling that tweeting high-temperature spam links could definitely kill the site more than cigs could kill the tweeter

There's spam farms in China and Eastern Europe that employ lots of people who manually open accounts on various sites and post spam. Its not done by a bot. At least the account creation/ login part isn't.

@edgework: I can never trust China or it's people,all they do is fraud and nothing more,this is why I am against Communism,I'm afraid that they will allegedly took over this site as if you weren't here. just whatever it takes or the cost,the alternative log-in part must be banished,so it can grow independent,and spam-free.

some parts are believed to have close relation to spamming,I can only think of some attention-hungry fellas in Ukraine who would require a fund-raise for their movement to oust the government,or Romania...I have no comment on Poland,however
