    ** A wired phone would have to be installed in a dwelling - at very least.

    Mobiles owned by " tycoons " could be a debatable issue ....

    ** Which they very likely would - if that number were listed in the
    Yellow Pages, on a web site or in advertising.

    WHO "very likely would"? Who the hell do you think is going to be paid to
    check anything and why?
    (assuming anyone could even agree on a clear cut definition of "primarily
    used for domestic purposes".)

    Fact is that a home phone "primarily used for domestic purposes" can still
    be listed in the YP as a part time business, or any other advertising for
    that matter.

    Now *IF* the wording was "SOLELY used for domestic purposes" it may be
    easier to automate an exclusion, but it isn't.

    ** The caller - fuckwit .

    Perfect excuse - if the number is listed as a business number.

    Prime face - illegally.

    ** BOLLOCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The YP makes no such damn listings - cunthead.

    Get back to your autistic kiddie porn - **** BRAIN.

    As far as Telstra goes, the residential/business classification of phone
    numbers is quite explicit, so it's trivial for them to identify and exclude
    business numbers.

    So you really think the caller will check first to make sure your listing is
    not legitamate before calling you?
    In that case just list your number on donot call and let the callers worry
    about it! Should cut out 99.99% of them anyway! :)

    (And you call ME a fuckwit :) :)
    What crap, you obviously haven't bothered to pay for your toaster repair ad
    Phil. The fact that it's run from a bed sit makes no difference.
    And obviously it is still "primarily for domestic purposes".

    As usual your level of profanity matches your total lack of intelligent
    factual argument.

    Even assuming Telstra had any interest at all, which it doesn't, the
    "primarily for domestic use" clause is still a problem with home based

    ** How brain dead can this ** ASS ** get ??

    If a number appears in advertising THEN callers will likely assume it
    cannot be legitimately on the register.

    So, no need to check it through the "washing" system operated by the Govt

  10. What utter crapology. Phil Allison decides to privately sell his
    second-hand dud Quad ESLs.
    He places an advertisement in the local paper with his telephone number as
    the means of contact.
    I rest my case Toaster Boi.
    Your argument just got shot down in flames by your own statement.
    Oh, BTW is that toast I smell burning? :p

    Talking about yourself again Phil?
    Assuming they got the number from your ad, which is probably only a minority
    of calls, so you're still ahead.

    *context snipped*
    Failed English and reading comprehension I see Phil. Only profanity makes
    your vocabulary it seems.
    And it was necessary to snip my post in order to make a false claim, how
    clever of you.

  16. You'd think someone would take home a message from the fact
    that a service that was set up to allow only a million
    registrations received half of that on the first *day*...

    "Clifford Heath"

    ** Where did you get the " million " figure from ????

    The Aust Govt on-line register is taking about 200,000 PEOPLE per day at
    present ( ie 150 per minute averaged over 24 hours ) Each person can
    register up to THREE phone numbers.

    Similar resisters exist in the USA where around 50% of all domestic phones
    are now listed - it is claimed to be easily the most popular new law with
    the public.

    So the other 50 % of phone owner don't mind the spammers ??

    Wrong !!

    The other 50% are made up of unlisted numbers and new numbers that the
    spammers have not got hold of yet.

    But be grateful you are not in America - cos it is still legal to spam
    mobile phones in many US states.

    In America (and most of the world ) the owner of a mobile phone PAYS for
    all calls received !!

    So YOU pay for the spammer to call YOU !!

  20. It's still advertising you dipstick.

    You are even more stupid than I gave you credit for.
    No wonder you're still limited to buggering toasters.

    There is absolutely no difference between an advertisement to sell something
    privately than commercially except the cost and the typical structure /
    layout of the advertisement. A simple two liner for the dud Quads versus a
    serious spread for a real commercially viable business. The latter of
    course you wouldn't be personally acquainted with as your hobby toaster
    repair "business" doesn't quite qualify to be in that league.
