I like this – product of some stream-of-unconsciousness browsing, the sort of thing the interweb does so well.

    This is great! Printed a copy, will study it later. I discovered that interrupting them with questions does really discombobulate many i.e. asking them to repeat, or saying “I don’t understand” etc., but didn’t like to waste my time doing that with them.

    My husband’s favorite line was “If you’re selling, soliciting, or promoting, we have nothing to talk about” then he would hang up. Now, if some get through he simply says, “I don’t take these calls” then hangs up.

    Fortunately, in recent years we (USA) established a national DO NOT CALL phone list which we immediately put our number on. So far, so good. We don’t get these calls any more. In time am sure they’ll come up with a way around it.

    Now, about Spam on the Net … despite precautions, they get through.
