I have to hand it to my housemate though - he passed on my mobile number to a cold caller at home. Wasn't very impressed :(


Ah I can go one better than that. I had a letter at my then home address in London, from a company that publishes a directory of places of worship, of all religions. They wanted to know if I would care to update the details of my address which - completely inexplicably - they had listed as a Sufi house of worship. So I posted it back, telling them 'we' had moved, and giving them the address of a mates flat nearby.

Nice one Saint... I'll give that one a shot if ERA call again.

And thanks SMS. I'd forgotten the complete embargo this site has. Quite extraordinary. Won't ask why but it must be good, to have yielded such an unequivocal (aka seemingly paranoid :? ) caution!

Oh.... my .... GOD!!! I think I might copy $Pripp's avatar.

8.15 and I have just been cold-called AGAIN!!!!! :mad: :mad:

This time it was ... HSR(?), the guy didn't get much of a look in on the conversation :mad: :mad:

Saint, I followed your suggestion, cut him off mid-opening-sentence, and asked for his home number. He then asked what that might be concerning, so I said so I could call him back when it was convenient for me. Then he gave me his number! :o I asked if it would be ok if I called him back at say 10pm, and he said yes it would :o

Since he was so helpful, I thought it would be nice to share his # in case others wish to call him too ! 9829-0927

Two options I'd like to offer you Mr. Ong

- Shut the f*** up, and the Mods delete your posts since you seem to be 'going off on one' as a gobby cina.

- Shut up, but then live your whole life in a Chinese body.

Man, look at that, there are people that hate you as much as you do them, that's gotta suck
