I guess it's the difference between an engineering classroom and a "community" that's free to exchange information, technical and otherwise.

I like it.

You're out of luck there because political messages aren't covered by 
do not call, nor are charities. I usually let caller ID screen my 
call for me. The do not call complaint page wants the number and the 
id of the caller if you have it. If I'm feeling especially irritated, 
I do a Google search on the phone number--just the number without 
going to a white pages listing--and it usually turns up what I need 
in a few minutes.
