      I’ve been impolite to enough of them over the years (over the phone) that the steady flow seems to have trickled off. But since I’m an unaffiliated voter, I get it from both sides. And I’m never too shy to tell them what I think.

      I don’t think anyone’s actually monitoring this channel, which is even more irritating — but I can still capture the screenshots and post them here.

        I never pick up robocalls. Maybe I shlould and tell them my opinion. The words would be kind of drastic, to say the least.

          I’ve taken a hard line against answering numbers I don’t know. If they leave a voicemail, fine; if not, I block the number. No mercy.

            About the same here. I block unknown numbers on my cell phone. Unfortunately, though, a lot of these robocalls have a slightly different number everytime they call. So, blocking one number doesn’t help. The positive side: my cel lphone recognizes quite a few numbers as spam and blocks them automatically.
            Our landline, though, can’t block anything. And that’s really annoying.

            We just don’t have a landline — that simplifies that angle. And I’ll block every number I have to. There just doesn’t seem to be a point to the DNC list if there’s no consequences.
