He already replied -- saying that they were planning on doing something
about it.

I've followed up asking what that might be (given that all current
attempts have been pretty worthless).  I also pointed out that 17726
could perhaps be partly funded by the legit calling firms, by charging
them for live access to their complaints stats, so that they could tune
them to cause least offence on the fly.

I'll post a link if one is forthcoming.

Cheers, Phil.
