A question

Is it considered unremarkable and acceptable behaviour to ask for a stranger's contact details (namely, a phone number) immediately upon engaging with them online? And is it considered unremarkable and acceptable behaviour to give it upon such a request? And is it therefore considered bizarre, rude, anti-social or verging on the hysterical to refuse?

I am completely baffled by this. Common sense tells me that asking for a stranger's number is presumptous and riven with the potential to go wrong, but when I tell them no, they act like I'm being unreasonable or that I just need to be persuaded.

Ew no, that's gross unacceptable behavior on the interweb AND in person.

That sounds really forward. It wouldn't shock me or anything, but I'd have no problem turning down such a request.

Not something I'd be okay with either. Rather odd to want someone's phone number immediately after engaging with them. That seems more like a request after two people have been talking for a while / gotten to know each other a little first.
