    Im tired of getting phone calls by political campaigns,that go on for so fucking long. I've heard some that are 10+ minutes long. Is there any way to sue them for theft of service? I know that if you spam with emails its considered theft of service,what about phone calls.

    Campaign calls are exempt from that since their not commercial businesses.

    Buy one of those handheld compressed air powered air horns they sell for women.

    When they call, say hang on a second, and then blast them with it.

    Tell them "one more call and I won't vote for you along with my 107 family members."



    Note-Family members are variable ;)

    That would be good if it would hit the ones that ordered these calls, which is most likely not the case... You'd only hit some underpaid call center agent..

    Hey man is it on your cellphone? If you have Android or iOS you can download a free app called "GBlocker". I use it ALL the time, to block annoying people, telemarketers, psycho ex girlfriends...etc....

    Heres the best part. It has a feature to "Quickly Answer and Hang Up". Which will not allow them to leave you a voicemail. You can even reply to every blocked call with a text message if you want, like "STOP FUCKING CALLING ME ASSHOLE". Works Miracles.

    Yikes, it's usually the other way around. Not sure then, haven't had one in about 5 years.

    Turn off answering machine on phone. Don't answer phone unless caller ID shows it's someone you want to talk with. After awhile, they think it's a dead number. Most are recordings anyway.

    Some people call the campaign headquarters and ask how to be taken off their list.
