Robocalls are a growing problem. If only we could make the FCC care a little bit more about fixing it.

Idjit Pai's such a transparent mealy mouthed lil shit weasel who I've no doubt would sell his own grandma if the price was right. I'm betting it wouldn't even be triple digits.

If there's one thing I can agree with John with, it's that Ajit Pai is a goober.

"What's the point of calling someone 20 times a day?" - it's like texting my lover 20 times in a row, out of desperation for a booty call.

So you mean to say my social security was not hacked? And I did not have to give them $5000. And Ajit got a cut in it? O! Darn Oliver, why did you not tell me that sooner? And what about all the Hilton free bookings I got? Nooooooo!

I was very excited to get a call saying that my bank could lower my mortgage payment. Except for the fact I’m in middle school.

I get so many of these that I don't answer numbers I don't know. I've missed actual calls before because I won't answer if I don't recognize a number or the location it is from. It's always "Katie on a recorded line" or something about my Medicare health benefits that I don't have. I'm on the Do Not Call list and it doesn't matter. I also get calls from spoofed numbers usually with the same first three digits. Called back a couple of times. One lady cursed me out, called me a bitch and hung up. Another was really understanding and I explained that someone probably spoofed her number because she hadn't actually called.

If you simply made every caller pay a nickel to every person called, non-targeted calls would be dramatically reduced. White lists could be institute so you didn't have to pay your mother to call... likewise businesses could opt out.

Tip: If you get a robocall, try pressing 2 on the keypad. I did that to all the ones I was getting and they have let up quite a bit
SlipperyMooseCakes Prije 19 sati
If you have T-mobile and type in #662# it will automatically block calls that would show up as "Scam Likely". It isn't perfect but it helps. Oh and it's free.
emeralddarkness Prije 19 sati
The guy asking if the caller was a robot was real aggrivating because I've worked in a lot of call centers and have had a lot of people assume I'm a robot. Normally I just laugh it off and assume that just means I sound professional but let me tell you it gets real aggrivating when someone won't drop it.

I think my "blocked contact" list has exceeded 2,000. I've been using an app that catches about 80% of robo/scam calls. And yeah, I pay 99 cents a month for it. It doubles as a health-app because it keeps the big vein in my head from exploding. Mr. Oliver strikes again with brilliance.

I lost a ton of respect for the show, forced or not, for the Michael Jackson comments. If the writers aren't researching enough to know there is a defendable argument for his innocence then what else are they researching poorly and toting as fact to their viewers?

I usually answer and attempt to get a human on the other hand, and then I say something to the effective of "Help me I'm bleeding, please send help, I don't know how to stop the bleeding, there's so much blood, please help me." And that usually freaks them out enough so that they hang up.

Capitalism fucks up every means of communication we have, and we can't get it together to just pass a goddamn law that stops it. Junk mail. Email spam. robocalls. Pathetic.

I love how he isn't just hilarious, he always takes immediate action to fix the problem he addresses. I wish someone like him would run for president. Someone with a sense of humor would be real with the public. Donald Trump already broke the now any celebrity can do it. Why not someone we trust? You can literally do your same job from a position of power. Imagine how funny the State of the Union would be. But I guess you'd have to be a natural born citizen though? there's ways around that

If you still get robocalled, you're doing something wrong. The actual issue isn't that big of an issue if you've been alive less than 300 years. As Oliver just showed, you can actually have a lot of fun with telephone scammers. For instance: Call-forwarding. I'm not suggesting anyone actually do this... However, you could set up a voip number. Spam every phone list that's likely to get you robocalled. When the calls start coming in, automate your call forwarding to redirect the calls to Ajit Pai and your local representatives. We can think bigger than one call every ninety minutes.

This is cool and funny in theory, but the calls always come from different numbers. I can block every number that ever robocalls me and still get the same number of robocalls every day. I've even had the calls look like I am calling myself. If it was just a matter of fucking with the phone number the calls were coming from, this wouldn't even be an issue. We'd all have moved on with our lives and had a good laugh.

FYI, that "I AM a real person" phone call is indeed a robot. There have been crude AI based robo-callers for years with large vocabularies that can "respond".

This is journalism. Fox, CNN, everyone - this is what journalism should look like. You identify an issue. You investigate that issue. You report on that issue in great detail. Obviously they're doing this with humor here but at the center of it is actually really good journalism.

Here is a quote from John Oliver calling for the harassment of another talk show host. MSNBC article dated today. "I would argue that Tucker is actually a good example of an internet pile-on being merited," Oliver said. Karma is a strong ally for the righteous.
