"Needless to say pressing "9" to be removed from the company's list is ineffective,"

I give out a £1.50 070 number to all contacts. It costs me £10/year

If they're going to market at me, they can bloody well pay for it - incoming calls on the number are strung along as long as possible before mentioning how much they're paying for the call - which usually results in swearing and a hangup. Spammers may be able to fake their callerID, but telcos make a point of ensuring they get paid for chargable stuff.
