Not sure who they're talking to - we've been on since the start and get
about 1 call a month, if that.

Any who get through to me are politely asked to remove our number from
their list. Case closed - peace n quiet.

Previously, my son used to answer the phone and would grill the person on
the other end. It was wonderful to hear a 10 year old saying "No, my
parents don't want to talk to you if you're selling something" - they just
gave up eventually :)
