    Couple months ago, I got a phone call from a firm touting satellite dishes. I'm on the Do not call list and had been getting a bunch and it pissed me off.
    So I waited until the end, listened for the name of the company and number, as well as looking at it on the caller id.
    I filled out the form on the FCC website and that's it -- until yesterday, when I received a copy of their complaint against the owner of the company who was informed he was being fined up to $11,000 and had 30 days to file an appeal the nearest office to his location in Minot, N.D.
    Now, am sure he's going to bail and change company names before then, but it's nice to know that while I might not have shut him down, at least I caused him grief.

    I salute you, sir. It's dicks of the world like you that make society tolerable for the rest of us.

    And your name came up a couple of times this weekend during my trip to New Orleans.

    Problem is you put yourself on the TELEMARKERS do not call list and the TELEMARKETERS didn't get word.
    So fix that and they'll leave you alone.

    I put myself on several of those lists and I get more calls than ever. Magazine sales and police organizations are the worst.

    Are telemarkers what John Madden uses?

    If you kill a telemarketing company, it invariably goes into the books as "justifiable homicide."
