OT, but important: Cell phone #'s "going public"


Awl --
Can they shove it in any farther??
Here's what someone emailed Le Wife.
If it's true, it's going to be just like the effing fax machines that you
can't leave turned on anymore.
I also think the do not call registry is only partially effective, as these
spamming muthafuckas can cloak their origins, etc.
Sheeit, I'm going to have to get more 1# jars of vaseline, now for my cell
phones.... goodgawd.....

Complete bullshit.

-- Can I register my cell phone on the National Do Not Call Registry?
Yes, you may place your personal cell phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. The registry has accepted cell phone numbers since it opened for registrations in June 2003. There is no deadline to register a home or cell phone number on the Registry.
You may have received an email telling you that your cell phone is about to be assaulted by telemarketing calls as a result of a new cell phone number database; however, that is not the case. FCC regulations prohibit telemarketers from using automated dialers to call cell phone numbers. Automated dialers are standard in the industry, so most telemarketers don=92t call consumers on their cell phones without their consent. --
