Recently, there was a ham that Tweeted:
oh man, i wish that these ppl would tell me if they're a 1010 member and gimme their number... i 4got how fun 10m was
He was encouraged to look up the number on the http://www.ten-ten.org web site and then ask the member for his number. That will work and it worked for him on his next QSO.
However, we are 10-10 members. Aren't we proud of our 10-10 number? Can people join 10-10 without collecting numbers? Can they get chapter and 10-10 awards without a 10-10 number? How many mobile operators have a computer close at hand that will allow them the opportunity to safely look up numbers?
Can we do better, please?
