  [vote for,

Facebook and others like Email providers have recently been asking for my phone number. Repeatedly. Annoyingly. With no way to turn it off. (The Clowns)

So, I will just give a fake number from now on. I will use the 555 prefix that cannot actually be called if possible. But I ain't gonna take it no more.

They make us all liars with such ease. Yuck!

       Uhh, pretty much everyone already does this. You didn't really think I live at 111 A St., A, Afghanistan?

       Sigh! Why am I always the last to find out ? Next thing they will be saying is the cigarettes are bad for your health or somthin.

       Hey, [ytk], I had a pen-friend who lived near there? Perhaps you knew him? He was called Joe Bloggs.

       Two factor authentication is worthwhile practice.   

       Using a fake phone number is widely known to exist.

       Thing is, sooner or later Facebook will start making automated calls to confirm the number. That will be lovely.

       I want 666-666-6666 The devils spawn I am. Beware facebook or I'll delete my account. Hahahaha!

       Facebook and all the others will soon find ways around this problem of fake contact details. Why not just give them [8th]'s details like I do?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 07 2015

       Don't you know? 8th is Facebook, version 3.0, simply pushed forward into time.   

       Resistance is futile.

       So you use Facebook?   

       Why would one need to use it at all?
