Account registration?

after all of the fuss about making us set up new passwords for security reasons so that we don't get personal information hacked, why does the site expect me to give my phone number so that they can "complete my registration process"?

I've never been asked for my phone number here! And i wouldn't give it. It if came down to it I'd just use my dummy number 555-555-5555. I use that for all the things that "require" a phone number but don't actually need a phone number.

figured it out. Had to reset my password because dang if I can remember what I had to change it to. Then the conformation email for the password change to "confirm identity" was slow coming in so when I logged into the site it wanted me to confirm my ID by giving a phone number or "clicking on the link in the email"
