++ Validated Users

I know the site currently requires users to validate using an e-mail address and mobile phone number, but given that anyone can set up an e-mail address in seconds and a mobile phone can probably be had for £10 GBP, I would like to suggest a higher level of validation that would, if done, display a padlock at the side of the user icon.

 

The higher validation would require SMS reply of a secure number and another account like (say) LinkedIn to validate the user.

 

Then you could be assured that the user was bona fide, or ignore at your option the ones that were not bona fide.

 

I will not suggest MOS as as a contractor / former consultant you do not always have access to MOS and when you do it is frequently with a client provided e-mail address.
