[Operators] Prosody vs. spammers - security measures?

Sorry If I have been confrontational.
I did misread your sentence,

Just as hypothetical example, leaving alone internet SMS services which 
grant receptions.
Given the louse normatives regarding rechargeable SIM cards in most 
countries it could be even less expensive then getting domains and vps 
for a spammer to do unsollecited registrations with sms services rather 
then mail...

Which is why if you want something to be secure you need multiple layers 
of protection,
For instance Google puts together Mail + SMS + other stuff (and it's far 
from being foolproof itself).

You may not agree legitimally, but still saying SMS verification alone 
is better then E-Mail verification is misleading at best. The fact it 
works for you it doesn't mean it's an optimal choice and should put 
other methods apart.
