Nowadays (almost) every site/platform asks for your phone-number or Google-/FB-account when registering. And sometimes your birthday as well. "For security reasons" and "personalized advertising", but mostly so they can track everything what you do online, what kind of person you are, what your income is and how much you spend on what, and where you do what in the real world as well (through your tracksmartphone). And then they also sell that info, or they get hacked one day or another. Long live 1984.

Of course. I don't use THAT site to sign in on anything. I have a "spam stuff" email to use for those... And unless I really really want/need it, no phone number. Or a fake. Same to bday. And name.  And address (never a real address, unless I am buying things that'll be shipped - duh!). And whatever.

Thank you for reminding me that I actually have my own site. I deleted my imgur account IMMEDIATELY.
