    I'm starting nursing school prerequisites on September 20th. It'll take me three years to get that over with. The goal is to be able to come work in AUS/NZ for a few months at a time since I'll have highly desirable qualifications as well as work as a travel nurse here in the US. Then we can put your hypothesis to the test. :deal

    One of my brothers was doing that a couple of years ago in his ute with camper, didn’t last long though highway patrol pulled him over to give him a lecture.

    You could probably talk to the crew in the International Space Station, they are only 410km up in the sky.

    Just realised that nothing hangs and everything is always perky up there due to zero gravity :-)

    Well, the first text I got from Craig Kelly and his obese mate Palmer, I replied with language not fit for the ears of women and children.
    There was nothing to indicate my message did NOT get through.

    This morning I had another, with a link to adverse vaccine reactions.
    I sent virtually the same abusive reply but this time I was advised my message was NOT delivered.

    I guess they finally got sick of all the abuse and changed their system settings ? :lol3

    You can write them a letter ... unfortunately Ozpost would not accept what I'd send them...

    I just block their number. Haven't heard from them for ages.

    That isn't working for the scam calls I'm getting about my non existent Amazon account, Fuckers use a different 03 xxxxxx number each time.

    Can you block political Spam ?

    I ask this because in my brief work history as a Postie, we were told we had to deliver political leaflets to letterboxes even if they had “No Junk Mail” signs.
    Maybe the same applies to unsolicited texts from Political parties ?

    The blocking takes place on your phone, not through a government website.
    E.G. I have blocked the phone number for the 'National Crime Commission' as scammers have spoofed that number to me. I'd think the governit would object, but they don't object strongly enough to stop the spoofing, so fuck 'em. Blocks calls + texts .. blocks anything from that number.

    I have an Android phone, but I think the same can be done on an iPhone..

    I’ll give it a try.
    As long as they don’t keep switching numbers ?

    I'm curious what you wrote! :evil

    In the US they call about my car's extended warranty or with Hilton or Marriott Rewards from hundreds of numbers. It's obnoxious.
