Of course, if the theory of using OpenID is that it makes signup easier, you'd expect to see significantly more signups and user activity if you supported it. That would be a reason to use it, but I haven't heard anyone claiming that happens in practice. If it doesn't actually encourage user activity, I'd have to say it's well and truly useless from the site's perspective.
