I'd be rich...
If I had a buck for every time my kid stabbed me after I politely reminded him during a DDR session that white doodes can't dance.

Use another service. Whoever said it won't reduce spam - you're wrong. Adding the mobile phone, human element to the sign-up procedure will eliminate bot generated accounts (at least for a while) that are leveraged for distributing spam. Whoever said, "hello phone spam" - that already exists. To suggest that a philanthropic org like Google would go out on such an obvious, detrimental limb is just plain retarded. Most of us use our mobiles for the majority of our phone communication and understand the risks involved. Go live on a mountain with just a goat and your loin cloth if you're so naive as to think that worse companies who haven't even asked for your mobile number aren't already abusing it.
