Two online sites have asked me to upload my ID before allowing me to buy something. No. No, that’s not going to happen. Never.

Why do these sites think it is OK to ask that? I have no clue who they are or what they’ll do with my ID once they get it.

It’s a disturbing trend that we should all be saying “no” to. Your identity isn’t worth a sweater or phone or whatever you’re buying. Credit cards have adequate built in protections for both merchants and consumers. Not great, but adequate.
