    Kepler fails to realize that once you start knocking off 1%'ers in volume, HE will become one

    You would think there would be a way to eliminate cell phone spoofing by making the carriers check the callers MDN and MIN numbers to ensure they're genuine. Knowing the big four (soon to be three), they would charge you a monthly fee to make your caller ID have that screening feature. Kinda like Verizon already does for their existing service (furrows brow in VZW's direction for charging $2.99 a month for plain old caller ID).
    Anytime a 218 number calls me, I know it's a scam. There is only one other person I know with one, and I have his number saved already.

    My mom's cousin's husband used to get a ton of telemarketer calls when he owned his own business. He used to record himself screwing with them. My favorite was when a medical insurance company called and he pretended he had full blown AIDS, cancer, and was on dialysis.

    They hung up pretty quick.
