I'm a Software Engineer at a small company in San Francisco. I really enjoy solving problems and seeing new ideas take shape, in almost whatever form they are expressed in.

I suppose I just saw a few other questions that do this, and thought that was the norm. Thanks for pointing this out as un-necessary :)

comment Is it reasonable to require passwords when users sign into my application through social media accounts?
It might be, and the behavior I'm seeing is specific to the omniauth gem for RoR. It appears to simply trust that whatever user Facebook says is logged in is the right one, and doesn't give the user much opportunity to say "no, that's not me, use this account instead," with the exception of cancelling the operation, changing user accounts on their preferred provider, then trying again from scratch...

Thanks for the response! I wasn't intending to ask users to create passwords, but to prove to the provider in question that they do in fact have control over whatever account is returned to the oauth callback. I tried to clarify this in an edit :)

Ah, I was unclear about this in my question. I'll edit it accordingly.
