lenwood writes "I've been getting unsolicited calls from the same company for the past 2+ years, "selling" a lower APR for my credit card. They're quick to hang up if I ask them to remove me from their calling list, so they've never heard me say that. They've called from literally dozens of numbers (and area codes), so call blocking is no use. I'm at my wit's end, how can I put a stop to this nonsense?"

"The situation is serious, but under control... there (was) not and will not be any significant release of radioactivity." Very interesting read, and he's been updating it based on comments."

Turns out that this was a publicity stunt staged by WBC themselves. Anonymous issued a press release disassociating themselves from this."
