unwanted telephone calls

The air has been getting thinner in Denver for the
last couple of weeks, and the lack of oxygen is
driving some of us nuts( like sending an e-mail to
Fork etc ).

Totally unrelated to this thin air, a federal judge in
Denver has ruled that no call list is illegal.

While this decision may languish in courts for next
few decades,here is a tip from a friend. When a tele
marketer calls you, tell him/her to hold on, and keep
the phone aside, go about your business for the next
10-15 minutes and hangup. This will do two things:

  a) Frustrate the tele marketer 
  b) Wastes the money for whoever is paying the
telemarketer by hour.

Ofcourse if you are expecting other calls during this
time, this could be a problem. Ofcourse, this only
works if enough people actually do it.
