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.
