I think this is how Trump University worked. Until he was caught and had to pay a huge sum to ("I never settle") settle out of court.

"I am obsessed and miss Hillary SOOOOO much". Its a syndrome.

As highfigh says, give it a rest. There are also people obsessed with Trump here. Let's just friggin' leave these things off this site.

Around 1972 the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band released a version of their song

No No Matter Who You Vote For The Government Always Gets In

Doesn't that pretty much sum things up?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

During the 2012 election cycle, I went to a client's house and saw a placard with "This Sign Will Totally Change The Way You Vote" in their yard.

But since we're here to discuss harassing calls, has anyone been getting a lot of calls from Home Advisor?

No sign will change the way I vote, and no trashing each other during the so called debates will either. I vote for the one I feel is the lesser evil, and that is hard, because they all seem to have a level of evil.

While I still get several spam calls each day, I only get the emails from TA and the like. Just about 50 or so a day.

That was the point of the sign.

Does your phone have a privacy feature that can limit the calls, or is this a land line?

Nope. Verizon in their wisdom will only allow for blocking 5 numbers, and then only for 90 days. They also have nothing in place that will help with the problem. Probably because that's not in their interest. Burn up those useless minutes.

We're going to T-Mobile and leaving Verizon for good.

I don’t think this is correct unless you are still using a non smart phone. As for minutes, Verizon quit doing minute packages years ago. All plans now are unlimited calling and text

Blocking a particular number might not be much of a solution because spammers can spoof the Caller ID system.

If I don't recognize a number, I don't answer. if it's a spam call, I just dump it.

Life is too short for that BS.

Our plan is not now, nor has it ever been unlimited calling and text.

Am still using an old Samsung flip phone, but changing to a Iphone in the next couple weeks, even though I only use the thing as a phone.
