it doesn't need to be authenticated.  in my experience pads are almost
never vandalized (i remember one case where the person vandalizing them
had auto-translate on chrome enabled and it messed up the text) and
they're much richer when many people is involved.  you can always save
them using the star icon.

+1 for an open pad
