Jaded Press '9' for Do Not Call

Comment: When you answer a telemarketer/solicitor call, simply press 9;
the call will be dropped and your phone number is then put on the
companies do not call list. 95% of companies support this feature.

Seriously, that would be great. Now there are going to be a bunch of telemarketers who get a high pitched beep tone while talking. Then when the recipient hears them still connected, a longer tone, etc.
