Automated anti-telemarketer script – brilliant!

Annoyed by telemarketers? Too polite to abuse them or just hang up? Can’t be bothered wasting their time in person? Then you need AstyCrapper. If you’re using the open-source Asterisk PBX, it will crap on for ages on your behalf. It works by detecting responses from the telemarketer and silence gaps and responding with a series of recorded samples. It’s pretty convincing!

OK, maybe that doesn’t apply to you, but you can still have a good laugh at the example calls.


  1. We get loads of telemarketing calls and do use Asterisk PBX – will take a look – neat idea!

  2. Awesome! This is great fun, and yet polite to the telemarketeer. He isn’t being bashed and yet still he is screwed. Really nice.
