I think everyone should subscribe anyone he or she knows. Send those telemarketing losers a signal.

I don't think anyone other than the person who's phone line it is should be able to say they do not want to be called.

Damn it, no one should be signed up unless they specifically ask for it. No call lists are wonderful, I'm sure, but they should be OPTIONAL, as in the person being put ons option. Not some third party twat.

We live on base so we don't get many calls. But it's always fun when we do, especially when I'm in a bad mood..I like doing weird things to their minds...
