kleuske writes: More and more frequently companies like Google, Twitter and Yahoo are asking me to get my mobile phone number, under the guise that they need it in case I forget my password, username of to confirm my identity. Without it these companies refuse entry. I cannot even watch a youtube vid without disclosing my phone-number to these companies.

I hope this is sufficiently clear. Yours truly, Kleuske.
