I have been mulling over answering these calls with a very strong "XXZ Police Department, we have been told you are harassing this person..." and see how many words I would get out before being hung up on. Just wondering. :-)

Every person here is spot-on regarding this ridiculous situation. We PAY for our phone service. Others do not have the right to call us! It is a privilege! We have the right to choose who calls us. Comcast's Digital Voice pdf instructions says: "BLOCK CALLS All Comcast phone lines come with 900/976/700/500 Call Blocking activated so that calls to these numbers are automatically blocked. Call Blocking to these numbers cannot be removed. There is no charge for this service." If Comcast can block calls to 900/976/700 and 500 numbers, why the heck can't they block from whomever we choose? We should also be able to block by name, as well as number! At the very least, increase the amount of phone numbers we can screen. The National Do Not Call Registry is a good idea, but has no way of enforcing its regulations. It's short on funds, people and time. Speaking of funds, maybe it's going to take a large amount of customers moving to different phone companies to make Comcast sit up and pay attention. They need to make some changes tout de suite! To the admin reading this, please. I know you personally can't do anything right now, but you can send this missive along to the right people. Computer programmers are remarkably capable and intelligent. Let them do their jobs.
