while phones have vulnerabilities (ie, android < 2.0 and many versions
of ios) i don't think this is very wise information to give out.
that is, debian users aren't the only ones who read these emails. i
have noticed 10x (or more) spam sense i've started reading mailing
lists. and, these lists are archived (for better or for worse). i try
to minimize how much personally identifiable information i provide on
these lists. asking about my phone is almost like asking how the lock
on my front door is pinned - most people won't know how to abuse the
information, but those who do would have an easy way in.
