Re: [Anveo] Importance of "Do not answer the line"

said by JoeSchmoe007:

I am finding blacklist less and less effective. More often than not it is new number. I am thinking of white-listing known contacts, everyone else has to dial one digit to be connected, another - to leave a message. The only concern is how many legitimate calls I will lose if I decide to do that.

 
They only get to pester me once per number, and lucky for me, one's my limit.

Besides, I don't pick up calls which I do not recognise anyway - instead I look up the numbers online, and decide their portal fate fifthwith.

Though I DO see a value in whitelisting.

Mayhaps use BOTH ?

I don't see a point to use both.
