Hang up on Yoomba
Rumor has it that Yoomba, the contact-list-spamming VoIP service was shut down this week.
www.yoomba.com is down, FWIW. Sad to see that at best, highly impolite business practices survived this long.
Newsflash: Criminal Aliens apparently to be removed from US
So now, get this: apparently the homeland secretary wants criminal aliens out of the US.
As a law-abiding, legal alien, I am surprised to learn that this is not the case already. But then, they don't kick illegal aliens out, either. Why am I following this rabbit-warren of rules again?
On the other hand, there are these crazy rumors where you're held until the day after your visa expires and then escorted out of the country if they can't find any real crime to charge you with. I suspect you'd need to be extremely belligerent for anyone to bother.
