I came up with a neat trick.  Start the answering message on your
answering machine with “Hello…” and then a pause.  Telemarketers
seem to often use computers to detect this “hello…” as a human and then
the real human telemarketer picks up the phone.  I was getting 0 messages
on my answering machine before.  Now I’m getting around 4 per day
from frustrated telemarketers hanging up on my answering machine while
I’m not at home.  It is to laugh!
