Summary: OpenID and bad behavior interaction
Original Request:
I use badbehavior -- http://error.wordpress.com/ on my LifeType blog -- http://jon.limedaley.com/, and it conflicts with your implementation of openID, due to you using URI::Fetch/0.03 as your user agent in the openID request.

I have added an exception for LiveJournal exception to the LifeType version of badbehavior, and also notified the author of Bad Behavior, but he thought that you would want to know:

> programming or with URI::Fetch.

Thank you for your report, and I do apologize for the delay in responding to this request. A member of LiveJournal's engineering team has investigated this situation. It appears that this problem is related to the way that the badbehavior plugin interacts with OpenID, and not with how OpenID itself is written. We recommend that you follow up with the plugin's developer. I apologize for the inconvenience.
