I think publication of phone number should be out of purview of self-publicity as it makes possible quick and direct contact too.
Moreover, phone number of any member can be obtained by sending him direct email on the email id mentioned on the blog.
So, ban on posting of phone number is not fully justified.  However, if some one try to serve some commercial purpose by mentioning his/ her phone number, the same can be banned but not for the RTI related discussions.
