Foil telemarketers for fun and profit

2003-04-01 21:04:48.100845+00 by Diane Reese 1 comments

If you're in California, you can pre-register for the national Do Not Call registry. You can list up to 4 phone numbers (residential or mobile lines included, business phone lines excluded). The CA Atty Gen'l will deliver the list once the national registry goes live in July 2003. (The "profit" part comes from the up-to-$11,000 you can petition for in small claims court if your number is on the list and they still call you come September...)

I just don't understand the need for this. I mean here are people calling you up, begging you to abuse them and hang up on them and y'all are claiming not to like it. Here is your chance to unleash the prank phone calls of your inner child with no reprecussions and y'all are looking for ways to avoid it. I just don't understand it.
