I should mention, I'm not always so paranoid that I check ID and all of
that. It really depends on how well I know the person. I've met Bruce only
once, so I wouldn't do it over the phone at all, since we don't share much
non-public background and I'm not dead certain that I could tell his voice
from a similar one. The same is not true when it comes to doing this with
some of my close friends.
