    If you think publishing cell phone numbers is such a great idea,
    why not post yours in this newsgroup?

    If they haven't given you their phone number or their address, what
    will it take for you to take the hint? A restraining order?

    Just offhand, can you name a specific carrier who charges extra for,
    or does not provide Caller ID?

    I don't exchange addresses with anyone unless they're coming over, nor
    do I phone everybody I've ever had hung out with after work with my new
    phone number, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be accessible to
    them.

    That being said, I'd either opt out of the directory listing, or list an
    alternate number which I can control (and usually leave pointing
    directly at voicemail)

    I have plenty. They have all given me a call, or sent me an email, with
    their new number. Perhaps your friends don't want you to find them. ;-)

    them.

    Which says alot about how much of a 'friend' they might be...

    Indeed, and perhaps better for you not getting stuck bailing out some nitwit
    in the middle of the night.

    Uh, is this really a friend, or just some stranger you're stalking?

    You might live to regret that decision if the person in trouble turned out
    to be your daughter or girlfriend.

    I have plenty of people I'd call friends, but unless I've been to their
    house there would be no need for me to have their address.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. Chances are it wouldn't hurt anything if you let
    the call go to voicemail and check the message.

    You'd still drive down to the police station and bail 'em out.
