Question: Why do I need a Google Account to log into the website?

Answer: Our website is running on Google AppEngine, which is provided as a free service if not used too heavily. Usage of this website is currently way below the quota for which we would be charged by Google. AppEngine also does the job of authenticating users, which eases the burden on those who design and maintain the website. In order for this to work, you need to be authenticated by Google with a Google Account.
