I figure that if no new spammers take up this wasted occupation, some time in the year 3057, I might have blocked them all from contacting me.

Richie Alan Naggar Yes, that is why I have an app from Verizon called MY FiOS. It allows me to block telephone numbers. If someone calls and they don't leave a message, they get blocked. The nice thing is they are blocked before the telephone can ring. This cut down a lot of the spammers.

Richie,

Someone out there has learned that I speak a couple more languages...So I get a barrage from France and French speaking nations, bunches in Russian, and lots in Japanese or Chinese, and I definitely don't read or speak either.  Every day there are about 60 of those that I put in spam.  And they just change servers and repeat. A
