The login to livejournal worked for me, too. But after I have seen how it 
works, I think it is too insecure to use the FAS password for authentication. 
This makes it pretty easy for any openid user to get the FAS password, 
because instead of really forwarding someone to the FAS homepage, one could 
just present the FAS login form to get the password. Here is an interesting
