Since the link to venganza.org keeps having server problems for me, and I thus don't know what information is there, I'll add a link to Wikipedia. ^_^

Well, I just spent an interesting 30 minutes on the phone with the FTC (and later the FCC). Apparently, despite what the FTC website says, cell phones are afforded no practical protection from telemarketers automatically. Yes, they're not 'supposed' to call you, but the gov won't do anything if they do. The ONLY answer: add your cell to the Do Not Call registry. Then, at least, if -any- telemarketer calls the gov will at least take the complaint, and eventually you might get invited to join a class action suit somewhere. Oh, it takes 30 days before they'll take complaints. But this also works for the fax problems discussed earlier! ^_^

Strangely, this is -oooooooold- news. Under-Ease won the 2001 Ig Nobel award for Biology. See http://www.ignobel.com/ig/ig-pastwinners.html#ig2001 for further info. It seems to have been noticed here at the time, though. ^_^
