Con

No it is not fair. It discriminates against those that do not have one and do not want one. I think it must be a error. there other ways to verify who we are.
It also means that the votes will not be the true numbers of Pro & Cons.

Pro

Ok, is it fair? Indeed it is.

--> First off, it is a website. You must conform to their standards of rules and regulations.
--> The phone number way of verification is almost a fool proof way of getting cheaters out. It is impossible to have more then one account under your control. Unless you have more then one cell phone....which would be a waste.
--> You have friends, right? You can easily ask one who has a cell phone to just make a confirmation. It is not that hard.

I used my Exxon phone, couldn't find my Mobil one. It seemed to work similarly.

It's okay as it stands; I would definitely change it though.

Not really discrimination. You make the decision to not have a cell phone, or know anyone that does. Barring people based on race or handicap would be discrimination, because they can't choose to be those things. Also, this is a private website, they should be allowed to discriminate and ban users for any reason.

I'm going to have to agree with Pro. I used my father's cell phone.

It is almost a full proof way to keep spammers and vote bombers out.
