I see a headline like this and I know there's no point in reading the article. I can tell you why...
It's because every service we use, every product we purchase, every professional we visit has sold our information and 99% of the calls we receive are crap from the companies and criminals who have purchased those lists.
They're spam. They're ads. They're wastes of time. They're bullshit.
So why would we pick up knowing that if it actually is a legit call they would just leave a message at the beep and we can call back?
My phone exists to not be used as a phone. Pure and simple.
