Telephone technician takes on telemarketers

The Jolly Roger Telephone Company is a blog that chronicles the phone robot's time-wasting exploits.

Sick of being harassed by telemarketers, an American phone technician set upon them with a plan to waste their time instead of his.

He invented a ‘robot’: “a simple test that would apply to every new number that called his house, sending auto-dialled calls to a recorded message to waste their time…”

You won’t believe what happened next.
