why are you endangering people

Because it's being used outside of it's designed use case. Signal is just a more secure replacement for SMS and normal telephone calls. It wasn't meant to provide perfect anonymity, it wasn't meant for use in oppressive regimes like Tor and tails are.

Signal makes a fine replacement for standard SMS and phone calls. the signal foundation and people in general need to stop pretending it's ready for anything more in it's current state.

That said they claim they're working on removing the phone number requirement.

Sure does... it tries to integrate with all the cleartext data on the phone, and find other Signal users without your/their consent. Shit that even your phone's SMS system doesn't do. Farewell sandboxing!
