Electioneering Telephone Spam in Australia

Well the election here has sunk to new lows, the Liberal party has called in the telemarketers to phone us up in our own homes to preach to us so that we may be converted to their way. Spamming people by email wasn’t enough for them..

The ABC News report gives the background for those who’ve not heard it. The Sydney Morning Herald has a poll gauging peoples responses, whilst I type this there have been 9051 votes, 90% of which voted for the ” I hate unsolicited marketing calls” option. 🙂

Reportedly folks with Caller-ID enabled are seeing these calls labelled as originating overseas, be good if anyone was able to confirm this though!
