You. Yes, you. You know who you are. You're an engager of toomfoolery. You like long walks on the beach, spoofing caller IDs, and living life on the edge.
(I kid, I kid. Even if the profile doesn't fit you, today's news is still rather important, as it affects caller ID services going forward.)
A few months after it moved through the Senate, the House of Representatives has passed the Truth in Caller ID Act of 2010 (H.R. 1258), an amendment to the Communications Bill of 1934. According to the bill, it is illegal "To cause any caller ID service to transmit misleading or inaccurate caller ID information, with the intent to defraud and deceive." An exemption is upheld for those blocking their own caller ID, and as with everything in this world, law enforcement isn't affected.
The bill now goes to the President for signing. If you hear anything as you're going to sleep tonight, it's probably the tears of thieves. Then again, I'm sure professional thieves aren't thinking twice about breaking the law.
