Telus phoned me

How about that? Not three hours after I blogged about Telus's website blocking and sent them an email protest about it, I received this phone message while I was out of the house, from the Alberta 403 area code:

Hello, this message is for Derek K. Miller. It's [name withheld] calling from the executive office at Telus. If you could, please return my call at [toll free number]. Thank you!

This could be interesting. I'll let you know how it goes.

UPDATE: I reached voice mail only, so we'll see if they call back again. In case you're interested, here are Telus's Internet terms of service and the acceptable use policy. I should note that, according to those documents, Telus is fully within its rights to block the website in question. That doesn't make it right or something customers should tolerate, though.
