How about a "War Stories" Forum Category?

Post by Ian »

Hello Bill,

I have been evaluating your marvellous Caller ID software (the 2.0.1.0 version) for about 2 weeks now and I think it offers a lot of potential for helping one beat back all the scammers who call us everyday.

I would like to suggest that you consider creating a new forum category (under your Caller ID main heading) called something like "War Stories" or "User to User", etc. Such a forum could be used for relating to each other our experiences in using the product and tips for leveraging it to maximum advantage.

An example, in my case, is that I successfully "zapped" my first scammer the other day (playing back the SIT tones and then hanging up the line) from a known troublesome area code. What happened though, is that he immediately called back (within 3 minutes) from a different (not previously identified) area code to "verify" my phone number and I was unable to "zap" the 2nd call. Consequently, I don't think he "believes" my number is really out of service, and I doubt he's going to actually remove it from his database.

I can think of other user-to-user feedback that could be posted in such a forum category as well, such as references to telephone number lookup sites (http://800notes.com, http://whocalled.us, etc.), and tips for creating rules in the Ascendis software that would be more iron clad to start out than what I've been able to create in 2 weeks of trial & error usage.

Hello Ian,

That sounds like a good idea! I preferred your "User to User" suggestion and used it for a new forum category:

Unrelatedly, I suggest trying the current beta version of Ascendis Caller ID. It contains several fixes and improvements that are not yet in an official release. The beta page is at:
