Thoughts: blame the phone company

The national do not call legislation is pretty much worthless, because the callers don't identify themselves. Caller ID is spoofed. You can't tell who the fuck to report to the do not call site. But the phone company knows who is calling whom and where the money is coming from. They probably make too much money from the phone spammers to make any serious efforts at getting rid of them.

The do not call legislation should have mandated the phone companies provide a free service to report the violators that can be accessed by doing something akin to *69. If a phone account gets too many reports, then the account can be investigated and fined and shut down if it is indeed spewing out spam.
