It is starting. Just checked my answering machine attached to my MJ. telemarketer!!!

I have only shared my MJ number with my friend and my 2 kids. No one is a risk.

So, only MJ could have spread my number.

Blocks of numbers assigned to MJ are public domain. The wiki explains how to discover them.

I received a couple robo calls. I went to the "do-not-call registry," registered my number, and haven't received another for 6-8 months.

Do not call registry is a lame duck. It worked great in the beginning, but now nobody cares about it. Interestingly, I receive near zero junk calls on my MJ line, even less than on my cell.

"Nobody" is a strong and obviously incorrect term.

You're correct that "some" ignore it. I receive occasional telemarketing calls on my cell phone (and used to on my landline before disconnecting it).

But, I've had *far* fewer after registering (despite the fact that I have a few now).

The number of "classic" telemarketing calls went down by 75%. However, the number of robo calls trippled, the number of junk faxes doubled, the number of "market research" calls doubled, the number of calls from certain aggressive "charities" ( like the notorious 'fraternal order of police'" remained the same. Landline thus. The number of junk calls to my cellphones increased four fold, allthough remained tolerable (about 2 per month on one and one per month on the other). Text spam to cellphones increased so dramatically that I completely disabled the feature on both of them. The junk calls and faxes at 3.a.m. were part of the consideration of getting rid off the land line.
Magic Jack : Not one junk call ever ( since nov. 2008). Knocking on the wood.
