Optout

Matt Haughey reminds us all to opt-out of SBC’s evil marketing practices.

Tabitha and I have enjoyed unprecedented crap on our current phone line. Fax calls come sometimes three times in a row in the middle of the night (“Beeep, beeep, beeep…”), phone spammers call and launch into infinitely long sales pitches in Chinese (“Ni how…”), and all manner of phone spam arrives on our answering machine (“You’ve won a contest…”, “You can remortgage your home…”, “All we need is your credit card number…”). It’s not really bad enough to warrant the hassle of changing the number and even if we did I suspect we’d still have problems. Spam sucks.
