Finally, a national DO NOT CALL registry in the United States!

It takes two minutes to register, and the registration is effective for 5 years.

Go ahead, unclutter those phone lines!

Qué alivio... Jul 2, 2003

Lo de los telemárketers es terrible. Ahora, ¿alguien sabe qué hacer con los mensajes que aparecen en pantalla cuando uno está conectado a Internet? Son "pop-ups", no mensajes de correo electrónico, y no sé desactivarlos. Descarté las opciones de insultar por teléfono a quien los envía y contratar abogados, por engorrosas y poco sutiles.

Respecto a los correos electrónicos, escuche sobre un programa que verifica la existencia de la dirección del remitente, por lo cual filtra la mayoría de los mensajes basura. Apenas tenga especificaciones las comparto.

Muchos saludos,

Stopping the "POP_UPS" Jul 2, 2003

Hi Andres

This is the most recent discussion about the pop ups, but if you want, you'll find more topics about them putting "pop up" in the search window on the left of the screen.

[and my mesage is in English because we're in the Being Independent forum]
