comment "authentication" preventing cnet users from comments

I see a number of cnet blogs using this new user "authentication" system. It asks the user to "authenticate" by giving your facebook credentials or other social networking credentials. The problem is, thus far, if you're a cnet user with a valid cnet account, you can't comment on these blogs! And what's more, THIS user isn't giving any of my social networking credentials just to comment on blogs because it's none of you people's damned business what social networks I'm on.
Stephen Shankland tells me in an email reply asking about this that the "developers" left out Cnet logins, but it's their "top priority" to fix this problem. I can fix the problem myself locally by just not going to the blog posts anymore.
