Re: Come on Ofcom

40 years ago, we were getting nuisance phone calls in our college dorm. The phones in our rooms had numbers that were in sequence, so I could hear my neighbors getting calls just before my phone would ring. So when they called, I took a firecracker and lit it, setting it right by the mouthpiece.

The crank phone calls stopped after that.
