    Oh yeah, let's just into a total panic!

    And the Qsent proposal makes this easier how? If the cell companies
    really wanted to do this, they wouldn't have to publish a 411
    directory... they already have our numbers and could easily sell those
    numbers TODAY.

    Oh and by the way... the Do Not Call list has problems as well. Putting
    your number on the list only makes your number off limits to for-profit
    telemarketing calls. Do you realize how many telemarketers have
    switched to getting paid to represent non-profit and political
    endeavors, both of which are NOT covered by DNC, and which ALL of those
    numbers are now publicly available and fair play to telemarketers
    getting paid to market for non-profit agencies? That's right, your cell
    phone number may not have been immediately known to non profit agencies,
    but putting it on the DNC list makes it available and callable to any
    boilerroom that's getting cash to guilt-trip called households to donate
    money to "worthy" causes. Of which half or more of the amount collected
    will go to "overhead" expenses, lining the pockets of telemarketing
    firms who are allowed to profit even if they work for "non-profit"
    agencies. Nice move, moron.

    Ah, so they can spam you too.

    Look, all you're doing is playing on the fears of the uninformed to
    spread an urban myth. I wish scum like you would get a life.

    If it has a US-based ANI, the provider is responsible.

    Pointing our your stupidity. You pronounce doom and gloom over allowing
    people to put cell numbers on a national publicly available list, and
    then you ask everyone to remedy that by putting their cell numbers on...
    what now? A publicly available, national list of phone numbers? Real
    smart.

    > Hypocrite!!!


    Yup, you've just described yourself pretty damn well.

    If I remember correctly, it was YOU who feared telemarketers.

    Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.
