Ditto.


I'd punch your jewels for that NOT to happen as well.

Maybe we should start a thread entitled: I'd Punch B&W in the Nuts .........

Mrs psu_dad: Couldn't he just delete it?
Me: Good point.

After I get my hands on one of the spammers I'd like to get my hands on the phone spammers that were mentioned a short time ago - they seem to be getting really active. I have a work cell and personal cell and between the two I got over 30 spam calls last week - many coming while I was either in the middle of a call on phone, on a conference call on my work desk phone - and most egregiously - while I was taking a post work out nap this weekend.

Since the numbers are spoofed blocking doesn't always work.

This would seem to be - at least to me - the kind of thing a politician could do a little grandstanding about and attack and manage to make 99% of the population happy. And all the politician would have to do is put the burden of enforcement on service providers and lay the wood on a few spammers / hackers that they catch and make it very public.

As they like to say in the business world - this is some low hanging fruit.

It is an obvious thing to go after but I'm not sure how easy, technically, it is to really enact. Spoofed numbers are a pretty big headache for carriers. But, at minimum, once a spoofed number has been identified they should at least block it from their network. There are things they can probably do.
