Re: CRTC fines foreign telemarketers for do-not-call violations

....Why the fuk do they call them telemarketers?

They are imposters/thieves/scammers....

 
Sadly, some of these are BOTH.

Any who are more than simply 'honest' telemarketers should be dealt with under other laws than our already toothless DNC list.

If these scammers get fined and arrested and whatnot, then you can't keep them on the phone for an hour while they mess with a virtual machine that you created to screw with them, eventually getting to the point where you unleash your anger while they pretend they don't know what a scam and lies are.

What? Arrest, or waste people's time?

Either has its merits.

However, I was talking about the virtual machine sandboxing stuff. - Have not done that so far.

Another basic angle on the 'time waste' would be that the longer you can keep such an arsehat 'on the line', as it were, the later he/she will get to [trying to rip off] the next victim - a standard tactic which some folks use on ordinary telemarketers.

Personally though, I'm for reaching thru the phone line and wringing their fucking necks - which is why I don't answer such calls anymore - in case I ever got motivated enough to find out how to DO that, in which case y'all might have to email me in the pen.
