Calgary Rejection Line

Hello,

I go to the University of Calgary and I am currently starting up a research project.
What I have created is a "text based rejection line."

What is a "text based rejection line?" It is a "fake" phone number that you give to people you aren't actually interested in having further contact with. When they call this number nobody will answer, however they will receive a "Rejection text message."

I will just get it off my chest now and say that I am not making any money off of this, and the companies I advertise are non-profit local organizations.

Last but not least here is the number:

(555) 555 5555 *Moderator Edit.

The number is meant for Calgary but will work anywhere in Canada, international numbers are filtered.

So I guess anyone calling that number is looking to hook up with someone else right? Isn't that also a way of collecting phone numbers of singles and people looking for a little?

So your theory is that this guy isn't a spammer (at this point), but a phisher then?

Yep, that about sums it up nicely.

So eventually the guy would end up with lists of phone numbers of lonely, rejected
Singles (hopefully Singles ). What would the spam look like when he sells the list to
spammers?

to quote Eddie: "I want a woman who can crush nuts, like walnuts"

Thanks to texting people now have those giant thumbs capable of "crushing walnuts".

How long before thumb stress injuries flood the health system?

Saying "get a grip" has no meaning anymore does it?

Only lonelier. It's a clever idea and I am sure that with consistant excerted effort he would find someone as lonely as he who would choose to give this weird guy a chance.

Would everything have been different if Eva Braun had texting?

Harper is nothing like Hitler and I will not stand for you degrading my prime minister like this Harper is a man of honour and integrety and a person that tries to do what is right.

Hitler was a muderer and a tyrant.

Compared to Hitler Harper is Jesus
