    Don't blame you at all for being upset. I'd go ballistic.

    But how are they getting your number? Phone book/listing? I've always had unlisted and forget that everyone doesn't. (I've always thought this was a form of legalized extortion on the part of the phone companies, "we have information about you and we're going to publish it unless you pay us more money." That's spelled E-X-T-O-R-T in my view. It ought to cost extra to have it published.)

    and the mean one mourns over giving.

    What goes through some people's mind....or... I guess doesn't go through their mind....

    What a waste; agree with some type of banishment.

    Thanks guys.

    Roger,
    They are getting my number from my business website. Since I work out of my home, I get the call at home.
    Thanks,

    Yeah, I used to get some odd calls when my home number was up on my web site. That got old, so I removed it. I can't really expect everyone to know what I will consider a welcome phone call.

    Seriously? I wouldn't think it was appropriate unless it was posted here for members to use. See all those comments above? Somehow they figured it out.

    I need my phone number there. That is how I oftentimes hear from prospective clients. Its my BUSINESS website and BUSINESS phone. Some prospective clients prefer email and some prefer calling. I'd be shooting myself in the foot to remove it. Yes sometimes I get random yahoos calling about stupid stuff. I can't control that, but with this site I can.

    We are discussing new regs and bans.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    Even worse when they call your 800 number at $0.25/minute!

    Absolutely! First call = permanent ban.

    Second (or subsequent) call from the same person... get the cops involved.

    There's no excuse for anyone putting that high a value on his ruminations on this or any forum.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Don't project on what I wrote. I'm just relaying an experience. Nowhere did I suggest that you do the same thing.

    Anyway, 'all the comments above' that you reference don't really sway one way or the other, not with the limited info available. Typical bandwagon/witch trail hysterics most forums are known for.
