no, it does not. we can get those and voters lists for free(we do some contracted political calling during campaign season) , without anyone ever batting an eyelash as to what they are going to be used for.
Registration is mandatory. Fees may apply.
said by Chubbysumo:Timeout is easily circumvented by distributing the dialing process across multiple outbound routes and interleaving them with gaps on the individual processes such as every 5 or 10 numbers. So process 1 might dial 0000, 0005, 0010. Process 2 dials 0001, 0006, 0011. Process 3 hits 0002, 0007, 0012. Likely there is also a variable delay between attempts. If they appear at the exchange from different sources with irregular timing, it is impossible to distinguish between programmed dialing and normal traffic. And, isn't there a flag that indicates a reverse-911 style notification system that suspends flood checking? If they can fake CID, they can fake that, too.
I dont think war dialing even works anymore, tbh. If we call the same exchange, over and over(meaning number after number), we get "timed out" from that exchange, meaning we can't hit an exchange with 555-0000, 555-0001, 2,3,4, ect. I really do highly believe that they pull their numbers from the national DNC registry, as well as voters lists, or they harvest them from other sources, but those are the two most likely.
