I suggest you ...

Offer Traditional User Account Registration

Please offer a traditional user account registration with Email/Password.

The options to login via FB, Google, Twitter or OpenID creates a dependency on another service - not so good after we learned how easy e.g. Google kicked us out.

Also, I do not want to give my email/personal details to a central location or trust them with my password (hello NSA :-).

        Great, thanks Vladimir!

        At least give options to add another social media authentication provider for the ones who want to close/move services.

        Please add this. I don't want to use the social media providers. This would be a reason for me to leave BazQux.

        I really hope this will be done. I can't wait to disconnect my Twitter account.

        I agree with Wolf. However, if an authentication system was developed, I would hope it would be possible to switch over to the new system without creating a whole new account.

        I agree that it would be good to have this as an option but implementing user authentication is no trivial task.

        I'm guessing that outsourcing authentication to a third party (at least for the moment) is allowing Vladimir to focus on core functionality (starred items, feed management, etc) which, for me at least, is a good call.
