I Am Not A Business!
People have started contacting me recently using the information on my domain registration, assuming that Kitten-x is a business. The first spam call I got was from Dun & Bradstreet, apparently repeat offenders, offering inclusion in a business directory. After I had explained that I was not a business the caller promptly hung up. The latest call was from a very pleasant women at yell(ow pages) who offered to me the details of the company who had supplied my details to them, one pH (sic, pretentious tossers) Group. I called them (02075980310 if you're interested) and asked to be removed from their list, I assumed it was them who would have looked up the details and was distributing my information, but no, the guy I spoke to offered to call the people that they'd got my information from, one Dun & Bradstreet. So my message to businesses out there is this: Don't bother paying Dun & Bradstreet for inclusion in their business directory, you'll get included anyway, whether you like it or not.
