    If the FCC wants to do something productive they should forget about Net Neutrality (I know they essentially have, but Dems seem to be resurfacing it in the House) and focus on finding and punishing these assholes.

    I saw somewhere there is new AI tech out there that weeds a lot of this out, and most of the providers were in the process of rolling it out free to users.

    If I don't recognize the number, I just don't answer.  That seems to help, although there are spurts where I'll get 2-3 a day for a week or so then it stops for a few months.  Although, if my voicemail is picking then I suppose that defeats the purpose of not answering.

    I tried one of the apps and it didn't do much to block the spoofers, although you can block a group of numbers close to yours (i.e. all 555-555-4XXX) which I suppose would be pretty effective.

    Heard this was coming.  Haven't dove into how to install or set-up.  But sounds promising.

    Yes it does.

    I use an ATT app.  Works fine, but I still get some random ones.  I got one from state highway patrol offices, or something like that.  

    HWY - "Can we count on you for a donation?"

    ETB -  "I'll consider.  Just send me envelope in mail and I'll take a look."

    HWY- "$50?"

    ETB -  "Just send me envelope in mail and I'll take a look."

    HWY - "$30?"

    ETB -  "Just send me envelope in mail and I'll take a look."

    HWY - "20?"

    ETB -  "Just send me envelope in mail and I'll take a look."

    HWY - "What can I get you to commit to."

    ETB - "For the last time, send me an envelope, I'll take a look at it, and we'll decide.  I can commit to doing that."

    I haven’t answered my phone in years for the most part. Everyone who knows me knows I like to text. When people really need to talk to me they will call twice in a row and I will usually pick up
