Hai guyz, what's going on in this thread?

Just a new way of doing the same thing that has been done for years.

Up and coming singers and bands still have their fans spam radio station request lines hoping to inflate the perception of interest in the artist. Which is why most radio stations ignore requests.

/Along with the fact that most of the time there isn't anyone actually there to answer the phone.

Another WTOP link? I'd rather click an Opposing Views or Daily Mail link, TYVM.

What, is WTOP lining Drews pockets for clicks nowadays? FFS.

My phone has this neat feature where if you are already on a call, anyone else who tries to call you gets what's known as a "busy" signal.

A friend of mine used to be on the phone (internet) WAY too often; made calling him nearly impossible.

If you recall, however, "call waiting" gave a beep when someone called. So I'd call, let it ring, hang up, repeat. Eventually, the constant beeping would piss off the modem and it would drop the connection; next call would go through.

I never did explain to him how I was always able to get through to him when he was online.

You should have tried yelling weird sounds into the phone, probably would have gotten free long distance calls.

I saw a commercial on the tee vee tonight that these folks would build my own facebook page for free and become my media consultant for a low monthly price.

why the hell didn't I think of that? How many fake accounts do you think you'd have to run at once to lure the rubes in?

Because fake "fans" making fake requests to local radio stations has the same potential for abuse and harm as, say, a baby crib manufacturer paying somebody to create fake positive reviews about their product.  Because hiring people to make phone calls to a single phone line is equally efficient as hiring someone to write a program to crawl web sites and make fake clicks.
