Why can’t I login to MakeUseOf using OpenID?

After being away from the website for a while, I’ve comeback and not seen an option to login through OpenID. The only available options right now are Facebook/Twitter/Google/MSN/Yahoo.

On this webpage it shows you how to get a MakeUseOf account and displays the OpenID icon at the very right. Has OpenID stopped being an available login method? And what happens to all the points I had saved up on that account?

    OpenID was removed some time ago. You won't be able to access the points on that account, though it appears that there were very few. If you'd like them restored to your new account please email me at mattsmith@makeuseof.com

    That is just an old screenshot and if you read the text it never mentions openID. As for the points you probably have to contact support by emailing mark@makeuseof.com
