    It works in NY State. I put my number on the State's list. and the nuisance
    calls dropped off sharply. Dinner time is more peaceful. I heard on the
    news that all numbers registered on the NY do-not-call list will
    automatically be put on the Federal list.

    I got a call from AT&T yesterday morning.

    ?! The Government Do Not Call List is new in the States. Telemarketers
    MUST remove the numbers or else face stiff fines. Apparently 750,000 ppl
    signed up on the first day. I think the FCC is taking the list very
    seriously tho.

    True, but some of the bills are so bad that anti-spam activists fear they
    would actually make the problem worse.

    A majority of the bills in Congress allow for "Opt-Out" verses "Opt-In".
    Basically, this means that if the "Opt-Out" law passes and the spammer
    actually follows the law (yeah right!) they are allowed to send you a
    message with "If you don't want to hear from me, click here." So, anyone
    can send you a message atleast once.

    With Opt-In (the way it should be) they need to send you a msg saying if
    you want to hear from us click here and if you don't click then they
    can't send you any messages.

    The US government likes to raise money. Let's see if someone in the
    government proposes a cure for spam that involves placing a 2 to 5 cent
    tax on every e-mail sent to the US.
