The only personal information I had to give, aside from the phone number itself, was a valid e-mail address. I used one of my ‘spam-catcher’ ones so that if they decided to misbehave with the e-mail address, I wouldn’t get a bunch of crap in one of the good ones.

Do you really believe it will make a difference? There’s still a heck of a lot of people still authorized to ring my phone every hour on the hour until I really do go mad.

Nah, I’m not going to take the chance of IDing myself and providing that much information in one place. (Not that someone couldn’t already track most of it down if they wanted to–I’m not that delusional.)

Same reason I don’t go for the concealed weapon permit which would allow me to carry a handgun tucked into some discrete place–it IDs me and potentially fingers me as a gun owner (albeit a legal one) in an environment decidedly negative toward such things. I want to make them work a little harder than that before they raid me and display my "arsenal" on the evening news.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
