But yeah, the OpenID implementation currently is a bit poor (still better than pretty much anywhere else online, but still poor), and the spam blocking functionality is of questionable value.
I don't know why the preview shows it'll work when it won't, that's daft, and I also don't know when they're going to improve the OpenID login UI (it's planned, I know that).
Hopefully by the end of open beta they'll have proper formatting for OpenID accounts that are validated, they're specifically pushing OpenID as a commenting function. But if you want an invite code, I have some spare.
Besides which, if you have a current website, put an OpenID redirect into the header, and use that URL, then it'll point to your current domain. The code's easy, this is what I had to put for my LJ (copied direct from an old domain):
And having a very brief look at the source from your linked address, copy this into your header on the new blog:
And you now have a fully working OpenID from your current domain—you can change the delegate and server ID if you want, Google and Yahoo are now providing OpenID verification although it's not as easy to get it right with the code (as in, I've never bothered).
At some point, I'd love to see it so that you can only comment on someone's blog with an OpenID or a login on that site, would make dealing with spam and sockpuppetts so much easier.
