Thanks Jim. I am hoping others will weigh in on this as well. What do you
mean by "a service of this nature"? At the least I agree that we should
include some guidance about its use. I would be happy to work on that.

In general it is the behavioral analysis and "social networking"
relationship information that concerns me here. I don't think it is a best
practice to allow third parties to collect, use and retain this kind of
OWASP membership information. Do you? How might we find a tool that will
serve us better in this regard. I am happy to help.
