I feel that I have read quite enough on the subject and that I am
making an informed choice. I have no reason not to provide my
name, address, and phone number. I'm a job-hunter and my
information is all over the Internet. I desire to be available.
I've spent close to 10 years on the Internet and I'm quite
satisfied with my approach to managing my personal information.

I've considered it, and it's not a problem for me. In fact, I
think it's great.

How dare they try to sell me goods and services that I might need
or want?

Because prosperity is a communal thing, that's why. Without
companies, we'd all be in caves.
