Is it absolutely necessary to have an account? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I added Zemanta because the reviews were generally enthusiastic. However, as soon as I reopened FireFox, I discovered that I couldn't do a thing with the add-on unless I opened an account with them. I'm getting to the point where I'm sick of opening accounts & sharing personal information with whomever, whatever their privacy policy is. Having looked at the description of the add-on, I decided that, for me, the benefits of using Zemanta are not worth one more internet account.

I know from reviews here and in the Apple App Store that there are a growing number of people who don't like to have to open accounts in order to use an app or add-on. So I suggest that the developers make it very clear in the description that a membership is required to use this add-on. It would be better for them because they won't have customers who are surprised (and likely annoyed) by the requirement after they have installed Zemanta.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed).
