    Anyone had any luck ridding unknown numbers from your life? I subscribed to the DMA's site to place my number on the "Do Not Call" list, but I get app. 25 calls from my area code with no name but the number listed. It's the same 8 numbers within a 10 digit string...ie xxx.0001, xxx.0002, xxx.0003, xxx.0004 to xxx.0010. Ugh.

    Anyone with similar experiences...especially in the Atlanta area?

    By the way, Happy Thanksgiving U.S.A.!

    Telemarketers are the ultimate pain-in-the-ass. After getting around a dozen or so calls each day, I finally quit answering my phone. All I use my land line for now is internet anyways, and I usually never log offline so my line stays busy. If any family member needs to reach me, they know to call my cell phone.

    I've quite answering my phone as well, usually letting the answer machine handle the calls. But sometimes, if I'm watching something, I'll pick up the phone and hang it up just to get rid of the ringing.

    It's rather sad that it's gotten to this point. Sigh...
