So I've been trying to fix this OAuth related bug for a few days now and I'm finally getting done with it. I read this article called OAuth has ruined everything by Burke Holland and then OAuth 2.0 and the road the hell by Eran Hammer (this guy was originally on the OAuth 2.0 working group) and I'm glad I'm not the only one who's not that fond of OAuth. BTW if you haven't read those articles, you probably should. At least the second one.
In the first article, the author talks about the love OAuth has been getting from the developer community on twitter, and I thought I'll share some of that love here.
So here we go.

Everybody complains how much working with OAuth client side sucks. Try implementing it server side.— Joe Torraca (@jtorraca) October 19, 2013
If you're having a tough time with OAuth too, it's alright. You're not the only one :D
