I am proposing a challenge to all website hackers out there: create a program to automate the registration of phone numbers into the Canadian National Do Not Call List. I’m sure there must be someone out there with the OCR programming skills to get around the relatively simple captcha on the registration screen:
Sadly, even with my phone number on the list I still get at least one unsolicited phone call per day. There really should be a way for victims of telemarketers, newspapers, survey companies, and political parties to charge said entities for unwanted, unsolicited calls. If only people cared about happiness and well-being rather than money. Still, at least the token effort of this list is something.
So, if you have the skills, why not use them for good instead of evil? Get every valid phone number entered into the Canadian National Do Not Call List.
