why all sites use email as the login name everywhere now? what has happened with 'usernames'? is this a thing of the old internet? I wish I could type 'fiatjaf' everywhere, instead of 'firstname.lastname@example.org'.

I will try to implement both possibilities on Sublevel. I prefer to login with my username too.
I swear wasn't trying to criticize Sublevel. I really couldn't even remember if Sublevel accepted usernames or just emails.
It is a usability thing. People are way less likely to forget their email address than what username they picked.
which people? people not used to computers and the internet, you mean? or people who had an ICQ nickname in their youth?
