TELEMARKETING....Back in 2003, after the federal Do-Not-Call registry went into effect, telemarketing calls at my house ended abruptly and almost completely. It was a miracle.

Lately, though, the calls have been creeping back up. I'm not talking about calls from any of the organizations exempted from the law. These aren't calls from pollsters or companies I already do business with. I'm talking about plain old telemarketing spam. It's not as bad as it used to be, but there's clearly been an uptick. I get a couple of illegal calls a week.

Anyone else having the same experience?
