Phone companies, state attorneys general announce broad campaign to fight robocalls.

snip~
Under the agreement, the 12 carriers have agreed to implement call-blocking technology, make anti-robocall tools available for free to consumers and deploy a new system that would label calls as real or spam. Known by its acronym, STIR/SHAKEN, the technology takes aim at a practice known as spoofing, where fraudsters mask their identities by using phone numbers that resemble those that they’re trying to contact in a bid to get victims to pick up and surrender their personal information

Signing the pledge are larger mobile carriers, such as AT&T, Comcast, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, which already have said they would implement such robocall protections and in some cases have started testing them around the country. Other carriers adopting the pledge include Bandwidth, CenturyLink, Charter, Consolidated, Frontier, U.S. Cellular and Windstream.

God, it can't come soon enough!
Not everyday, but I've gotten as many as two dozen in a day, usually 6 to 8 daily. If it isn't some moron telling me my google listing has expired, or my credit card has been breached, it's some Nigerian trying to convince me I won the lottery, but it'll cost me to get my money. :rolleyes:

If I do answer the phone, I remain silent. Usually, the phone call will end in a few seconds (because it did not hear a noise and the system hangs up).
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

Yeah, it does not matter what the invention is/was, there is some moron out there that can screw it up. I know of no one who has ever bought anything based off a robocall, why do they continue?
