I would love to start a movement to harasse telemarketers.
Blocking their calls does nothing…BUT, if you have the time, trying to waste as much of their time as possible is great.
I get 3 calls a day from Marriot Hotels. Ive never stayed there. Rather than block the calls, i take it, slam 0 a bunch of times to bypass the robocall part of the message. I get a marketer, and i let them go through their schpiel…falsely answer questions, and lead them in circles. They end up getting mad at ME and angrily hang up. Good fun (providing you have the time). Wasting their time prevents sales.
Ultimately id like to be able to keep someone on long enough to be able to trace a call (no idea how to do that) then start calling them tieing up their lines.
STOP TELEMARKETERS: the movement
Time to fight back
