This guy is probably the nicest caller to my robot. He’s not technically a telemarketer, but got caught by an unused number that I had in my PBX. He is on the phone for so long that the robot restarted and when he figured out that he was not speaking with a real person, he just kept going for a few minutes. And thanked me. I found this call extremely pleasant and entertaining. My goal is to block telemarketing and this “market research” caller is using an autodialer. No matter how noble the reason, I find it incredibly invasive to use automation to call me. Anyway, please enjoy this latest call and leave me some feedback on my blog (www.jollyrogertelephone.com) or facebook page (facebook.com/jollyrogertelephone). Thanks all!
Super nice guy – didn’t mind chatting with my robot for a while

OMG, this guy sounds so nice. I know “no mercy,” but I would love to talk with this guy and see what he was thinking throughout this. And it’s for the parks. He can’t be that bad. Lol.
You should add more responses and ways to delay…
Maybe include recognition of common questions such as “are you a real person?” And “what is your zip code?” Or whatever.
I agree. I have tried to tweak the robot over the years, but this version seems to work best. But it totally needs more things to say and speech recognition would be great (but expensive). Please back me on Kickstarter so we can do this and, working together, break their business model.
I have to ask… are you doing this with Asterisk and some custom code (like ItsLenny)? You definitely have a market here if you could build a little device to handle these things automagically.
That would be awesome but I just posted something recently that this bot really deserves to be in the cloud. With many other similar bots.
