    • Indeed. I believe in Karma and the concept of Yin and Yang. Not in the religious sense, but in the philosophical axiom which asserts that everything tends to balance out over time.

    • It’s annoying. I never answer calls from unknown numbers. If it’s legitimate, they can leave a message and I’ll get back to them. I read a marketing industry report some years back advising people not to answer robocalls because doing so increases the preference rating of your number for other telemarketers.
