Forcing to add a phone number to "verify" is NOT OK

Why am I forced to add my personal mobile number in an account under the excuse that is for verifying purposes, I must not be obligated to hand out information I do not want to. There must be a different way to verify that I am not a "Spammer" which certainly I am not.

It reached to the ridiculous point, I want to keep my privacy and now everywhere they force you to add personal information so I can be traced by marking emails and real spammers
