Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Yep. If I don't recognize the number/not in my contacts list, it's 'Unknown' or 'Blocked', I don't answer.

If I'm at a computer, I'll check the number on the 'net and if it's identified as a spammer (the 800notes site mainly), I'll blackhole the number in my 'spammer' or 'spammer2' contact.

Same here. All my friends know to leave a message and I'll call back.

Unfortunately, Caller ID can be spoofed.
I add repeat offenders to my number blocked list.
Unfortunately, they call from a different number.
I've turned off the ringer.
Ahhhhh! Peace and quiet.
Ride safe!

You never told ME that . . . . . .

Oh, wait . . . .. .
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
