Actually in Japan knowing someone's birthday (...birthDATE actually) is
sometimes enough to convince someone over the phone that YOU are the person in
question. Gentoo has a bunch of Japanese devs and I wouldn't be surprised if
they don't feel like sharing that info.
Hell, I even know plenty of people who don't want to do any online shopping,
because they don't want to give away their address.
