OpenID Notifications.

A little while ago someone mentioned in a comment on LJ (can't remember who or where it was) that one of the disadvantages of using OpenID was that you don't get comment notifications.

I'm not sure if anyone here had the same idea, but it's wrong. All you have to do is go to your "edit profile" page (after logging into LJ with OpenID), scroll down to "Contact Info", and put in the e-mail that you want notifications sent to. You'll get an e-mail shortly after asking you to verify it, and then it'll work just as if you had an account there... except you don't.

I've been using my OpenID account for a while to read my friends' journals on LJ, and it's been working pretty well for me. In fact yesterday I finally decided to delete my LJ and so far I don't feel like reactivating it.

So if you know anyone who's still waffling between making a permanent move here because all their friends are still at LJ, then you should tell them about this... OpenID is like methadone. :)

Open ID and friends locked posts

I was hoping someone here could help with a problem.

I understood, perhaps wrongly, that someone on LiveJournal could friend an InsaneJournal user's open ID and then, if the IJ user subscribed to the LJ user's feed, she would see friends-locked posts on her IJ friends page.

However, [info]happier_bunny logged into LJ with http://happier_bunny.insanejournal.com as her OpenID identity, and made a comment on a post on my LJ. Then she subscribed to a feed of my LJ, but cannot see my friends locked posts, even though I friended her open ID.

Did we do this wrong?

Should we have used http://happier-bunny.insanejournal.com instead, for instance? Or did we just get the whole process wrong?

Thank you.

I swear, I read something about using OpenID here, but when I go to the FAQs, there's no information available. How does one add a person logging in under OpenID to their friends list?
