We've fairly recently had one of those lists set up in Australia, and
more recently it's been discovered (surprise, surprise) that it doesn't
really work.  There's too many exceptions, and foreign callers don't
give a hoot.

Rocking up armed, over here, would probably cause a person serious legal
troubles, to put it mildly.  I can remember the national fuss made,
several years back, when some 80 year old decrepit pension shot at an
intruder in his house.  You'd think that'd be justifiable cause, but
it's not accepted.

Years ago I got the number of one of the repeat offenders, that spooked
them a bit (I called them back).  Caller ID was almost unheard of here,
back then.

I have fantasies about taking baseball bats and chainsaws to their
computer equipment.  Bulldozers and arson sound appealing, too.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
