That is, when the caller is "connected" the caller is faced with an audio "captcha". Depending upon the caller's actions, the caller may end up in voice mail, or getting disconnected, or getting the phone to ring for the recipient to answer. You don't need a contacts database for this. You don't need Siri. You don't need a "do not call" registry. The first person who invents this will be an instant billionaire, but apparently nobody wants free billions. I have been trying to promote this solution since 1993.
1. everyone loves captcha - legitimate callers would be rightly annoyed.
2. Stop talking about your billionaire idea and just do it already.
Sorry to be a bit off topic, but I have to ask the AI editors something that's bothered me for a long time:
Why is it that the list of banks in the lead article contains no formatting or line breaks but if you go into the forum comments the list is bulleted and nicely formatted?
A minor annoyance but bothersome nonetheless.
