Giving Cold-Calling the Cold Shoulder

Having had the umpteenth cold call for someone who has not lived at this house for nearly 3 years, I have been pushed over the edge and registered with the Telephone Preference Service - last time I looked this up, it was a real pain to apply but now you can apparently register online.

It's good to see this organisation following the Yes Minister pattern - just as the Ministry of Defence is in charge of making war, and the DTI presides over strikes and redundancy, so TPS allows you - allegedly - to "prefer" not to receive unsolicited calls.
