My new cordless phone has a killfile.

That'll come in handy for those endless fucking credit card scam calls. Bulk long distance rates must be waaaay too cheap, if I didn't bite the first time, why are you calling me again?

Also, why can't I find a cordless phone with li-ion batteries? I had to buy a new phone because the batteries on the old one are toast, and it was almost as much for a replacement as for the phone. I'm stingy, buying a new phone every 3 years grieves me, I've had my old wired phone for at least 15 years, and it was a FUCKING REFURB.



Seriously, I can buy a cell phone for $50 with a li-ion battery. That phone lasts 4-5 days between charges. Why can't I buy a cordless with that same battery?

One interesting thing about the endless scam calls is that they originate from the US, and therefore aren't subject to Canada's do not call list. Maybe I should start a scam company based in .CA to endlessly phonebomb Americans with the most annoying scam messages possible, that might encourage them to link up the 2 databases. And the scam itself must be somewhat lucrative, those guys can certainly afford lots of autodialers.
