I think it's beneficial to prevent social engineering attacks based on content our users post in this site.
One example of the problem is responses to this question, where users are asked about their current environment. Subsequently, users may have information in the Bio section that will identify their employers or the projects they are working on. This disclosure may be in volation of thier IT policy, and may be a risk in some situations..
With those goals in mind, I think it's a good idea to consider more security features on the user profile page (such as redaction), or the ability to post anonymous questions and answers.
I would even go so far and recommend that users use a different OpenID when using this site until we find a solution.
So based on that...
