    For those in the UK that aren't aware of this already http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/working_lunch/8091621.stm which is a directory of "Harvested" mobile phone details :angry:

    The 118800 website has been down since the day after this became public knowledge, quite possibly down to the shear number of people trying to go Ex-Dir, when it's back up I would suggest people go Ex-Dir if THEY want to decide who gets THEIR mobile number and prevent spamming and bogus calls :angry:

    Regards and pass this on.

    I don't live in UK, does this affect Ireland I wonder though. What a stupid idea. Someone will get all the numbers from the databse and get all sorts of info from it, and send spam, as you say. Bull-Sh**!

    Cheers on behald of RD's English children for the heads-up. :)
