A new idea for messing with spammers

Spam, both with email and over phone, is becoming a huge problem. There are plans from tech companies to do more to cut down on both, but it’s here to stay for a while.

Part of the problem is that so much of it is automated, at least for some of the initial contact. I enjoy wasting spammers’ time when I can, but it’s hard to know if I’m actually dealing with a real person or not.
