E-Mail spam is hard enough to deal with. Good filtering software can keep it under control to some extent. But, what if the same thing happens over a cellular connection? How do you control that? How do you judge an incoming number to be good or bad? Today morning within a span of two hours I have received all kinds of calls ranging from Credit Cards to Unit Linked Insurance Plans.

The need of the hour is to implement a “Do Not Call” registry, similar to the system in the United States. Last I heard, the Supreme Court of India was in the process of formulating such a law. One can only hope (or worse pray) that it is enacted ASAP!
