Latest Spam Phone Calls

OK, they’re not really spam, because they ask, “Is Rand Simberg there?” But that’s all they do, despite a clear machine request to leave a message. They’ve come from three or four different numbers. One of them asks repeatedly, “Is Rand Simberg there?” for over a minute (it’s my business line, so it just says “This is Interglobal Media [my corporation], please leave a message.”). I can’t help but believe, despite (or because of) the fact that they are looking for me, that these are people with whom I have no interest in talking. If they were legitimate, they’d leave a damn message what it’s about and leave a call-back number.

BTW, yes, posting has been light, because I’ve been very busy. Fortunately, in a potentially highly lucrative way.
