Blocking schemes

It's that time of campaign season, when sincere volunteers and robo candidates bombard your phone with with pleas for support. It's one of the reasons I'm happy to have caller ID.

Or not.

There was an interesting contrast to the two calls yesterday. One listed the number and only "Massachusetts" as the caller. Wow, a whole state calling me! The other listed the number and "Capuano for Senate."

I always understood the name of the caller needed to be displayed along with the number, although there certainly isn't a heck of a lot you can do about it, even though the attorney general's consumer protection office does take complaints -- if no action.

But what was interesting to me is the call from "Massachusetts" came from the campaign of Martha Coakley.

Would be nice if the candidate whose office is supposed to arbitrate the rules actually lived by them.
