Why is DOB required?

Why does Social hams require my birthdate?  That is private information that I do not give out.

Now it is not required anymore ...

    Sorry for the long delay, but I haven't been on for a while. 

    It still doesn't allow me to update my profile without putting in a birthday.  It has 0000-00-00 in the field, which I cannot erase (clicking on the field brings up a calendar, but the field itself is not editable).  Trying to save says I can't join if I'm over 120 years old.

    Thanks for responding.

    Not quite.  When I go to update my settings, it has the birthdate of 0000-00-00 in the field.  It can't be erased (clicking on it brings up a calendar), and when I try to save my settings with that date, it says "You cannot join this site if you are more than 120 years old."
