    If you haven't heard from your own family lately, maybe DH made use of *60.

    Besides, other people might use it to block bill collectors. Ex-husbands or wives or boyfriends or girlfriends. Their parents. Their kids. Their next-door neighbor. Any pest who calls repeatedly. Up to 12 of them. (Say this in the GEICO gecko's accent.)

    I got 3 calls in the space of about 2 hours from the same telemarketing company while I was trying to get my paperwork done. I had a BAD case of PMS that day and on the 3rd call I started screaming at them to "leave me alone" etc, etc, they hung up and I haven't heard from them since. It's been at least 3 months, they must have put a notation next to my number saying "crazy woman, do not ring" :wink:

    Oboy. Technically, disliking telemarketers is a negative thing. Thwarting someone's attempts to earn a living could be seen as negative.

    I wasn't saying this was a bad thread, but since it could be construed as negative, was wondering what the boundaries of negative are. Sorry, this was not an attempt to get this thread (or you) in trouble. After all, I've enjoyed it and found it to be fun and informative.
