Phone messages…

ChoiceMade 16 October 2008 65

I was at a friends house in Chisholm about an hour ago and the phone range with a recorded phone message from Zzzzzzz droning on about how he wont build a power plant near your suburb.

Geez, talk about desperate!!!

He went on about something else like GP’s.

The Libs in Brindabella have no chance what so ever, and it would be just gold if Dozspot were to roll Smyth or Pratt!

I want my number listed, so that people with a real reason to call me can do so. I don’t want political parties, charities or anyone selling anything to call me though. Ever.

that’s the dilemma, but. you list you no. and it is public, means anyone in the public can access it and call you. you can say ‘no thanks’ and hang up, but ya gotta answer to find out who it is first. luckily, i don’t have many friends.

Just got an SMS spam from Zed. He definitely doesn’t want my vote.

Silly Zed. He should have prefaced his ‘call’ with: Sorry to phone you in this fashion, folks, but I’m saving the environment by electronic means – check your mailbox for the alternative – wasted paper from Labor.

Or something along those lines … I think I just might have forgiven the call if he had!

Only problem with your complaint is that the Chief and Deputy Ministers of the day are the only shareholders of ACTEW. So a change of government just changes the names involved, not the motivations behind their actions.

One word Deano: Costello

Mate if you want to suppress it, I support your right to do so and will work with you for a change to the law to see that come to pass.

Considering that for some reason I get tampons and nappies sent to me at work with my name on it, I’m not really in the mood to sympathise with you to a great extent. It’s a letter, get over it.

your address and name is clearly public

How are our names and addresses clearly public? Mine certainly isn’t on a billboard or internet site.

I just Googled “You’re a knob” Skid, and it didn’t come up with that link.

Tylers: You could go to the UC Library but that one is 10 years out of date. I imagine that means it’s all electronic now.

They didn’t say they didn’t want to vote jakez. They said they didn’t want unsolicited mail sent to their home.

Thanks for that Justbands – that’s exactly right. I was expecting a response like that from Jakez.

Yes, I do and always will want to vote. I just think it’s very poor form to use our details which are intended to be used to register us “impartially” to vote. Using our private details in order to SECURE a vote should not be allowed. Sure, the details are available to the parties, but it’s VERY cold caller and telesales style to use this trusted information in such a way. Very on par with Zed’s approach.

You were expecting me to go off on a tangent about voluntary voting? Jesus Christ tylers can you refrain from getting pissy for two seconds. I never said it was right, I never said it was ethical, I merely gave you the answer.

Personally I think the electoral roll is rightfully public information, your address and name is clearly public, and if you don’t want it to be public you can have it hidden (although I’m not entirely sure if you need a special reason though and if you do, you shouldn’t need one).

And one other thing – I was posing a question for the forum, not just you.

tylersmayhem tylersmayhem 3:38 pm 17 Oct 08

Gee Skid – yeah – that was asked for. Thanks

You came back here to have a rant because you wanted to show that were too lazy to type three words into Google?
You’re a knob.

From the AEC site: “Electors who believe that having their address shown on the publicly available electoral roll could put their personal safety, or their family’s safety, at risk, can apply for silent elector status.”

So if this list is “public”, how would the average John Citizen get a copy? (no, I’m not interested in getting a copy – it’s a hypothetical question). More along the lines I mean does “public” mean those in power or those with money?

justbands said :

I thought there was provision to have your details hidden on the electoral roll, although a quick check of the AEC site & I can’t see anything suggesting that you can.

Silent electors need to have a bloody good reason not to be publicly listed, along the lines of personal, family, or national safety being at risk.
(Like working for ASIO, or being in witness protection)

I meant to post this on the other thread – whoops.

deezagood deezagood 2:32 pm 17 Oct 08

My little girl woke up this morning with a shocking chest infection and wheezing. I tried to get her into a doctor and couldn’t – not a single appointment available anywhere on the southside (I tried numerous clinics). So – we had to wait for hours at the Phillip walk in clinic, with my very sick little person coughing and wheezing. That is unacceptable; how can people accept that this is good healthcare? Everywhere else that I have lived it was possible to make same-day appointments (especially with a sick child) at the clinic of your choosing. I can’t fathom that Canberrans accept this.

Stanhope has lied, blatantly, regarding the power station fiasco. His lies are well documented. He has run roughshod over communities and failed to engage them – early – in the decision-making process (a hallmark of good consultation) on a range of issues. That is what makes community groups so irrate – the sense of utter powerlessness.

Canberra will never have good environmental policies whilst ACTewAGL is in-bed with the Labor government. Any advances made in making the ACT more sustainable (solar panels for all, water tanks for all, insulation for all) will ultimately significantly reduce ACTew’s profits, so why on earth would the Labor government embrace these initiatives? They have had eight years to do the things they said they would – eight years.

Stanhope is all powerful and has used this to his full advantage. He needs a lesson.
