When I logged on today, I was ask to participate in a survey to help MLS better serve it's users. Wanting to help Chad in any way I could I agreed to take the survey. The questions that followed had nothing to do with trains or my involvement with this forum site. For example, how does my involvement in making decisions about our groceries, in any way impact my use of MLS? Is this survey legitimate? Or, is it some kind of pop-up scam that has locked onto MLS?
If you want to get off the call list of a telemarketer, the 'Mrs. Doubtfire' bit seems to work pretty well.... Interrupt them politely, and ask them to hold on, -- yell, "Erlene! I TOLD you not to do that! Don't make me get the hose!"... then sweetly say "sorry, you were saying?"... For some reason if done right, they sometimes even forget what it was they were trying to sell you.
