    I didn't even know this was going on. The FTC declared a winner in April for its FTC Robocall Challenge deal with the problem of illegal Robo calls. The winner will be going live soon and it will be free. They even have a easy to remember name - NoMoRobo. Although I am waiting to see how successful it will be, I am cautiously optimistic.

    And, for anyone that might suggest it, I don't care if the calls are being redirected to the NSA. If it stops these people, I'll gladly let the NSA track my calls. :tongue2:

    NoMoRobo declares them to be terrorists (because they might be in the future) and sends a drone to the company's hq. Will be reported to be a gas leak.
