It'd be nice if TV producers even knew that not all of 555 was to be 
used for television shows*, let alone that there's an internet 
equivalent. Heck, it'd be nice if phone companies knew they weren't 
supposed to route all of 555 to information (Hi, Global Crossing). I can 
only assume it's some sort of "stupid tax" for people who dial crap they 
see on TV.
