    This was an e-mail sent out by my office:

    JUST A REMINDER....8 days from today, all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sale calls. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS.... To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone: 888-382-1222 It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time.

    It blocks your number for five (5) years.

    whoever runs snopes is a genius. i'm way too lazy to look into who created and keeps up the site but the world is a better place because of that site. (and no, i have no affiliation with snopes)

    I don't care. I'm glad he posted it. Not only did that, but I renewed my overall do-not-call registration, because I've been getting a telemarketer call or two in the past week.

    Just to review: it's illegal to use auto-dialers to dial cell phone numbers. Most telemarketers use auto-dialers. Ergo, it's pretty much illegal for them to call your cell phone.

    Also, according to Snopes, there really is a knife-wielding maniac in the back seat of your car waiting to kill you, and flashing your headlights at a car with no lights on will get you killed by under-initiation gang members.
