Why should i have to give my cell phone number to vote? I don't have a cell phone and if i did i wouldn't use it. I don't really like cellphones and since i dont have one i cant vote which is unfair since this is debate.org not musthaveacellphonetovote.org. So honestly i think they should change this, and make it fair to people who dont have cell phones.

It's to fight people making multiple accounts to vote.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

There must be an awful lot of people on this site using fake numbers, then!

I think its something about protecting the site from multi accounts. This would start a good debate on DDO. You know, kind of like voter ID laws vs. open voting. The same could be debated here.

As this website grows larger and larger, more people without cell phones are joining. Should this minority be stuck with less rights than a majority.

Airmax may be able to waive the cellphone requirement if you submit a request.
