Although ResearcherID is advertised as a free service, in my experience, it does not always act like one, at least not on the computers that sometimes use Athens.
I feel that with these complications, it is difficult recommending to add the ResearcherID badge to your email signature. For the system to be truly useful, it needs to be properly transparent, so that the user is confident that any recipient can open the correct page with a single click. Multiple redirections and attempts to authorise at unwanted services are not a good style on the modern web.
