In my estimation blocking robocalls is only half of the problem.  The  
other part is  the ability to spoof caller ID.  While there is an  
occasional legitimate reason to do this, it is being abused far greater  
than it should be.

I would suggest that anyone with a legitimate need to show caller ID  
that does not point back to the calling number would need to register  
the spoofed information with their telephone service provider.  All  
other calls with incorrect caller ID should be blocked right at the  
source, or when they come into this country.

I am on the "Do Not Call" list (which I think provides a list of good  
numbers for the telemarketing industry), but how can I complain about  
calls received when they came from the little old lady down the street,  
or many that show "not assigned"?

Well, for those with landlines, there are a plethora of custom
solutions out there not available to those with mobile phones.

You can even interface a PC with the phone line and use a custom
program you control. I'm sure the same blacklists could be
incorporated here.
