Google OpenId with Hostgator

I was trying to use Google OpenId to allow people to login with their Google account.  It made the request correctly to Google but on it's way back it said it was FORBIDDEN.

It turns out that it is a security setting that has to be changed on Hostgator's side.  I sent a ticket and within 10 minutes they had me up and going.  They said "it was hitting one of the mod security rules on the server which has now been whitelisted"
