Is that you Sam?-) What exactly would the FCC "enforce" if they took
over name id? All the "unavailable" calls I get do not even show the
phone number!

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: What they could enforce, if they
wished to go to the trouble, would be to insist that all telephone
calls for which name/number delivery was technically possible were
required to give that same information. No more playing around with
it, as telemarketers are inclined to do. PAT]
