In Australia, dob is often used as part of telephone banking identity
checking, and just about any identity checking process (online/telephone
and offline) Whilst it is never (or should never be) used on its own,
it is part of the process - basicly posting you dob online is like
publicly declaring half your root password to your lifes assets ... and
your willing to gamble that someone wont have the other half?
