RE: Telemarketing calls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Last time I checked your email message system/client should include a nice
little Subject line that you can see BEFORE reading the message.  If the
subject does not suit your taste, then there is a handy little button on the
keyboard that can deal with messages that don't interest you.  It is called
the delete key...feel free to use it.  Geeesh.

Oh, and last time I checked, EVERY message on this list is strictly speaking
non-work related in a direct sense.  In most cases, for most people on the
list, even the technical messages only have the most tangential aspect of
being work related in that they might increase their general knowledge, but
overwhelmingly have nothing to do with any projects that they are working
on...unless they were the person asking the question.

Chris:

Are you beginning to feel the effects of the summer heat, specifically, a
lower tolerance level to non work related phone calls? Well so am I! There
is nothing technically enlightening about these emails, get 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.
