To make people who forget to turn their cell phones off in movie theaters, accountable. This idea would require personal license plates for people. Or maybe just require that cell phone rings be a voicing of the name and National ID number of the person who owns the cell phone. That way when a cell phone rings in a public place, anyone who was interrupted can record their inconvenience at the centralized cell phone interrupt database.

       You mean, like everyone gets to have his mobile phone number tattoed across his forehead?

       What's a "National ID number" and are there equivalent National EGO numbers?

       Ian, ssh. Everyone knows we Brits are American, with national ID numbers and all that goes with it; Tony's just not formally announced it yet.

       I don't think there is any more need to control cell phone ringing than there is for farting. Or everyone ought be forced to fart their ID number in morse code or something.
