Is it the case that to verify you need to complete 3 debates OR verify by your cell phone?

I thought you had to do both?

I agree, I think it's both wrong and suspicious to make people verify by mobile phone. I do not like giving out my number to random sites, and also do not like the fact that a site is storing these numbers, along with basically a database of your opinions.

I have nevertheless tried so far 3 times, to have the message sent to my phone with the code to verify my identity, and 3 times it has not been sent. 3 times I have sent a message to debate.org 'customer support' querying this, and have had no response.

This is annoying as I would like to be able to vote on the debates, and can't without being 'verified'.

However, this whole thing now seems very suspicious to me as I said, and I am now thinking of leaving the site completely, and finding a way of making them remove any record of my contact number.

Has anyone else had problems with this? Did you all get the code to your phone?
