    What a great idea. Just started my list. I hate the fact that I never had any spam callers (because I am very carful with my number)until O2 had a security issue that meant websites I was on could see my number.

    What a stellar idea. I'm definitely going to give this a try while adding it to me ever growing list of "Why didn't I think of this?!!!"

    Thanks!

    Thanks all for the great tip. Bravo! 'Tis greatly appreciated.

    In that regard, please, those of you who have a list of known spammer telephone numbers will post such numbers so the rest of us can help eliminate these cretins.

    And maybe someday, a clever chap (or chapette) will maintain a current Contact Card with this (regularly consolidated/updated) info and link it for sharing--downloading & importing. Shareware???
