I've also never called NB 311, but I have often been the recipient of the eerie email, and there is no way to know what the call is about. Is there a way for there to be an outgoing message that lets the caller know that they have just entered a conference call, and that Noisebridge volunteers are being pages, and then urges the person to stay on the line (if it's possible, without it causing the caller to be in an uncomfortable position) to wait for NB people to enter the conference call? Or, maybe this is already the case?  If so, pardon my ignorance. Mitch.
