Do Not Call site falls over

The Australian Government today launched the much anticipated “Do Not Call” register allowing us in Australia to opt-out of being called by telemarketers.  Good first step.

The biggest problem right now is the site at www.donotcall.gov.au is not coping with the load of people trying to register.  That means there are a lot of people wanting to get off the lists used by telemarketers, who would have guessed!

It is a pity charities and the like are excluded from the new rules and will still be able to interrupt us at dinner time.
