    I am not allowed to publish a new hub unless i input a phone number for verification ??????
    So i spent the last 5 hours preparing a series of 3 hubs and now i cant publish them ??????
    Because first of all i dont have a cell phone, secondly i dont share my land line with anyone i dont know personally and thirdly there is no freaking way on this universe i would share private, sensitive  data on the internet.

    There is no other way to verify whatever needs to be verified, although i have already done that through email when i authenticated my account?

    I apologize in advance if there is a similar thread in the forum, I searched the first 3 pages and found nothing. I just havent the time and patience to check every page.

    HubPages requests phone numbers to rule out spammers.

        Email the team.  Perhaps they will allow you to provide it privately to them.
