Are we being served?

I am going to start this with a link to an article in the Washington Post about how robo callers outsmart the Government.

We have a comcast phone number, which does not connect due to my putting in a better cable modem that did not deal with phone lines, but before I pretty much dismantle our phones we used to get all kinds of scams from the famous lady calling about our credit card account, which they knew nothing about to people trying to set us up with free cruises.  This we discovered the NoMoRobo, for which you can sign up here, and we did.  I won’t go into the whole thing about how it works other than do say that you set you phone up so that when your phone rings the NoMoRobo system picks it up and checks the caller ID against it’s server list, and if it detects a problem, such as spammers or malicious caller number, it just hangs up…

The system worked for us,, and the number of calls we got fell to nearly zilch, though as far as I know none of our legitimate calls got turned down.

So what is the problem?  Do the people who pass these law not pay attention to what they are doing?  Did they pass these laws with their loop holes in order to show us how much they care, all the while not really limiting the callers in any meaningful way?

Thanks,

That Joe Guy.
