    I Think The Federal Government Did A Good Job!!

    Several months ago, the news reported that the government was going after the spam callers on landlines,,
    I thought that would be an impossible task!!

    Well, for the last week or two, I have not had a spam call,,

    I am not talking about spam calls on cell service, that is something different, also being looked at,,


    I haven't had a weekday without a spam call in over three years ( ) up until now,,,

    Anyone else notice fewer or no spam calls lately?
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I've never given out my landline number, so every incoming call is a spam call. I've had 3 incoming calls a day every day this week. Nomorobo stops most all of them at 1 ring though.

    Shhhh. Your going to ruin it.


    They were never bad for me until everyone started talking about them a few months ago. Then like you I haven’t got any.

    I have my doubts government did anything though unless it was special forces action. They are extremely limited by law and in crossing international boarders to enforce them. The state department may be pressuring the countries of origin though.

    We went 21st century a few years ago and scrapped the landline. I told the Missus I was tired of paying $50/month to be pestered by politicians, solicitors, and telemarketers. Now on the cell phone, if I don’t know the number, I don’t answer it. Sometimes even if I DO know the number, I don’t answer it. I'm cranky that way.

    What the government did was take the handcuffs off of the phone companies, giving them more freedom to defend against spam calls (which consume capacity without producing revenue). Letting free enterprise work...

    Unfortunately, my wife has now begun receiving many more spam TEXTs on her cell phone. Another round of Whack-a-Mole...

    That’s where law doesn’t allow the phone companies in this company to do anything. They are specifically required to complete all calls unless there is a court order that directly authorized deviations.

    As for a land line, I haven’t had one in about 20 years.

    nomorobo is awesome - I just wish they could get rid of that 1 ring - makes me jump every time since our phone never rings. But I know how it works and why the 1 ring is necessary.

    Been quiet here for a couple weeks - now nomorobo has been working with 1 call a day this week.

    But we get some that nomorobo doesn't get - there are from phone numbers with my same prefix and different every time. I've been slowly adding them to my blacklist.

    Ok, just had another call. I think the kudos to the government were premature.
