1019 - If you're in Detroit, don't call my cellphone

I've started getting nuisance calls from high school students in the Detroit area on my cellphone. I made the mistake of calling someone back from it last Friday, and the phone number has gotten spread around the school where one of the ladies I dated on Jimmy Kimmel Live teaches.

Since it doesn't appear to be stopping, I've decided to send any calls from the 313, 248, 586, 810, and 734 (thanks, sideband) area codes from numbers I don't recognize, as well as any calls without a valid caller ID, straight to voicemail. I'll promptly return any that aren't obvious prank calls. The rest will get summarily ignored.

If I had your number, I'd give you mine (in a screened comment, or somesuch), which does have an 810 area code, so you could properly ID it..

BTW, you might want to include 734 on the list.. Ann Arbor area isn't too far from Detroit, and it's easy to get a cell # from a surrounding area code.

Once or twice, I don't have a problem with. Ten times a day for three days is a bit much.

I don't know if banning numbers or area codes is allowed by the carrier...but that's not what I'm doing. I'm just looking at the caller ID display, and if it's from one of those area codes with no name attached (meaning it's not from someone in my address book), or if it says "No Caller ID", I just touch the ignore icon on my Treo 680.

Greetings. I wanted to notify you that moufette has been placed under "memorial" status, so the journal will not be erased.

Take care.

Hello!

I never would have guessed that The Tron Guy was also a furry. I see you have my friens Maus and Furball on your friends list. Cool! Do you hit any furcons over the year?

I'm very impressed with the costume work, by the by. I'm sure you're tired of hearing that, but hey, it's my first time saying it to you. I'm a bit of a costumer myself -- I do partial fursuits and, gauging from what you say in your explanation of Tron Guy, we have a very similar costuming style. (You can see an example of my costuming here: http://xepher.net/~slysquirrel/visuals/photo/fursuit/mff05/MFF05-312.jpg ).

In any case, keep up the good work. I hope to hear from you sometime.

I've only been to one furry con so far, and Anthrocon 2004 didn't do a lot for me: I spent the weekend mainly feeling lost. I'm going to RCFM this year with vakkotaur, and hope it'll be more enjoyable.

I haven't done any fursuits; that might change, but I'll need to learn a bit more first.

Yeah, I think that was from my school. Ms. Wyss. My friends were talking about how some kid called you and asked if yer man part had a USB outlet. I do admire the tron fad you got here, I even made a shirt with the scene with you and her walking in the park with her saying "The tron guy has a nice ass." She thought it was amazing. Good luck Tron Guy!

Yes, it was. I wish they'd stop it, too; that phone is my primary work contact point (well, besides email), and I'm hoping I don't skip an important call because the caller ID doesn't come through.

Thanks for the kind words...I bet that shirt was pretty nifty. Could you email me a picture sometime?

Fortunately, the problem seems to have abated.

Yes, they certainly are more blatant about it, but they're not that much more idiots than when I was that age.
