I know, a dangerous thing, but nevertheless, I started to ponder something...
More and more websites are popping up where all you have to do is enter your phone number, and the site sends you a link to an app, or hell, even ringtones. Then there are the websites where you upload something (like a ringtone) and then point your BBB to a link, enter a little code, and presto! the ringtone is there.
Now, my pondering took me to wonder how many of these websites will aggregate phone numbers, and sell them to junk mailers? I mean, in todays age, you don't need an email address. Just a phone number, and you can send as many junk messages as you want.
Do members of our fine forums know of any confirmed sites that won't sell phone numbers to marketers? (Yeah, I know, calling Spammers "marketers" is like calling a 50 Cal BMG a sidearm. )
