    Do not post your phone number for anybody in the world to see. Come on guys, its Internet 101 guidelines. Like giving away your banking details.

    Especially in the FOR SALE forums. Use PM, no issue with your contact number in a PM.

    Next time I will give your number as reference to the next telemarketing company phoning me.

    What??? They allow MASA at call centres???? So that's how they manage to sound so chipper, even after I've descibed their family lineage to them in great detail.

    I love them, I always try keem them going for as long as possible.

    Had one on for about 15-20 minute before, eventually told them I already had what they where selling....(which was a lie), and when she asked if I had any friends I could refer her to, I explained that I didn't any friends and how this made me sad etc etc etc.... She evetually hung up on me!

    Have to agree with you on this one.
    Studies show over 97% of spam goes to email addresses posted over the net.
