Why does home depot want mine when I buy a roll of duct tape?

So they can send you advertising crap in the mail.

(and call you up at 2 o'clock in the morning wanting to know if you want to come down to the store for a sex party)

They already have your phone number.

They just want to see if you are in the camp that will divulge it or not.

I clicked on something like-not now and continue and can get my youtube just fine?

WF language are you speaking?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1383399


You have an option when asked for your phone number on youtube.
That option is"not now" or something like that.
Then you click continue.
It is not the teacher before you that manifests what you perceive as an awakening, but the awakening within you that manifests what you perceive as a teacher.

Google your name and see what info about yourself is out there.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1383461


Lol...I did that yesterday. It would appear I share a name with a semi-famous person (in a VERY particular circle of scientists), so I gave up after page 30 and no results with my name or info :)

Google working against itself!

FU Google

Also, I am sick of my own banking site deciding it needs
"3 little questions answered" like what were your high school colors"?

I know WHY they SAY they want it, I DON'T LIKE IT.

Re: Why does Google want my phone number?
Sometimes the zip is required to process the credit card. But, most times it is just for marketing data. I don't mind giving that out as there are thousands of other people who share the same number. As to phone number, I always use a previous phone number, not my current one. When places ask you to put a driver's license number on your check (yes, I still write checks for some things), I always use the number from my first driver's license. For some reason I remember it, but can't remember my current one and am too lazy to dig to find it in my purse.

Here in China, if you want to use Wifi at Starsucks then you have to give your mobile nr and they send the logincode to you.

That freaks me out because it seems they are logging what i receive and send and connecting it to my cellnr.

I mean, what is the fucking point of requiring my mobile nr to surf the net? I am boycotting those bastards just because of this. I want my privacy back damnit...

I don't even have a cell phone, nor do I need one, so I have no number to give.

Re: Why does Google want my phone number?
This is an intelligent person, and most of us have fallen for it. If you say you haven't then you're a liar. People are so easy when it comes to something free. The fact is we have all been takne in by this evil. Now Google is buying ATT mobile, does that make it more clear??? BAhh Sheeple!



Because they like you.
 Quoting: Mittermeyer



Yea, I'm sure they do. They like to know where I live (Google Earth and maps), who I email (Gmail), what I write (Google docs), what I take pictures of (Picassa) and on and on. I am starting to feel like I have been sucked in by all of the free services- but what in return has been the greater cost?

 Quoting: OilAwakening


THIS HAPPENS TO ME TOO! But the thing is, I can't ignore it. I try and try and try to open my Gmail, but it keeps popping up, saying I need to change from 'Live' account to 'Gmail', and I was like "okay.." and I filled it in, and then they asked for my phone number, and I don't have one! Only home phone, So I can't access my own Emails because the motherfuckers wanna call me up?
