    I have grown so sick of supposed  “research”  companies phoning me.

    I’ve had those from “entertainment”, “political”,  “general” and what ever else they deem to call themselves.

    I do not want to partake in any of them,  but the calls  keep coming in,  sometimes up to 8.30 at night,  despite the Do Not Call Register,  which seems to be a very toothless tiger.

    I have also had it up to my ears with calls from charities.

    I give what I give,  when I can give it.  I do not want to support children in Africa – there’s enough in Australia.

    Rob, do you use a standard (wired) telephone service?
    Is your number listed in the white pages?
    I have used VOIP for my telephone service for a LONG time now.
    The number does not appear in any telephone book.
    It is not one of the usual sequence of numbers that are easily programmed in to a ‘dialler’ used by those trying to ‘get at you’.
    Calls such as you describe are, for me, rare to never.
    On those rarer than rare occasions, I listen politely for a short time, then quietly hang up without making any comment.
    I hope this information is of some use to you.
