Only one thing discourages Robocalls... waste their time.
Time/Money are the only pain these people feel.. so the idea is to get to a human being (money+time) and then waste their time as much as possible.
FTC challenge is over, I just had a robocall block idea... Internet linked device that plugs into the phone... big "spam" button on top... when you hit the button, the device interacts with the robocall to WASTE TIME.. (possibly even switching the call to an internet based line) which is the only pain they can feel. Since these are scripted, it could ID the caller by the script/recorded message, then do everything it can to stall and waste their time. "Ohh.. oh, wait.. hold on, let me get my mom on the line... oh, crap .. hold on, she's *on the toilet* ... " "yes, hello?" "Oh, my, I DO want to lower my CC bill.. could you hold on a second while I get my wallet?" ... "Crap, I left it in the car... one second, please." ....
Then, each week - you hire a voice actor or five to record snippets and scripts to use... or even send them to customers in trade for the device.
