    I get those calls, I am on the DNC list, but they still persist.

    If I am bored, I will answer, the tell the guy to F'off and die,

    or that I had his mother last night and got back change for the quarter, then hang up.

    A lot now are computer generated and you have to say hello a second time to run the program.

    Most of the time when I see the number come up on the TV screen I just ignore it other times pick and and hang right up.

    I have always loved that scam perpetrated on the telemarketer.
    I have now started answering as if I am Spanish. After a few seconds I tell the
    idiot I don't speak English (no hable English,por favor Espanol) They usually ask
    if anyone in the house speaks English and and I just hit them up again with the
    same BS. One time I did get handed off to a Spanish speaking person and I had
    to switch to no parle pas Anglais, parlez vous Francais.
    That got rid of them.

    A new one I have is a recording on my computer of a fax machine sound. I play
    it repeatedly until I see the call has disconnected. I hope the idiots will think it's
    a fax and remove the number.

    I'm guessing it was a "qualifer" compiling a file on you - good chance you'll be hearing from loads of conservative fundraisers and telemarketing outfits selling conservative oriented goods .... selling pre-qualified telephone #s is still a big biz

    I have a buddy who is retired and has time on his hands. He's quick witted and will hold a five minute convo with them and then say, nah, no thanks. And then hang up. He has a good time, we're starting to worry about him!
