* Do Not Call actually enforced?

Personal Stuff/Random News
The FTC just slapped two companies for violating the Do Not Call registry:

According to the FTC's complaint, the Westgate defendants bought phone numbers from an Internet-based lead generator that collected contact information in connection with offering an array of free and discounted products to consumers on its Brandarama.com Web site. The Westgate defendants purchased the telephone numbers of consumers who answered travel-related survey questions, such as "Select your favorite travel destination," on Brandarama.com's online form, the FTC stated. Many of these telephone numbers were on the DNC Registry. The Brandarama.com Web site did not refer to Westgate or notify consumers that they would receive telemarketing calls, except in language buried in its "terms and conditions" or "privacy policy" pages, the FTC stated.
Maybe next time, we can make trying to bury crap in pages on pages on pages of unreadable text illegal as well.
