    Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?

    This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and
    records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This technique is
    used to determine the best time of day for a "real" sales person to call
    back and be assured someone is at home.

    What you can do after answering if you notice there is no one there is to
    immediately start hitting your # button on the phone 6 or 7 times as quickly
    as possible. This confuses the machine that dialled the call and it kicks
    your number out of their system.

    Gosh - what a shame it is for them not to have your name and number readily
    available any longer.
