Clever. I would advise that spreading panic and overreacting is probably not the best thing for keeping this forum open and welcoming. Just my $0.02 on the matter.

With regard to robocalls, I never answer any number I don't recognize. It goes straight to voicemail and if it's important I follow up. It's kind of a hard and fast rule for me considering I can't just give up my free time like that to total strangers or machines.

Okay, on a slight sidenote, does anyone else feel like spam/hacks/robo stuff is becoming more and more commonplace?

These days, many forums that I frequent get spam every few weeks, and most of my social media accounts have been hacked.

Now all my friends think I've put them on Instagram's Hot List frown

I guess there's no ether option when you're online.

Ick. Hope you got all of that straightened out. I've found that second factor authentication (using a code generator is preferable but even SMS-based is better than none at all) really helps on that front.

Bates, if most of your social accounts were hacked, were you reusing passwords or something?
