Robocall truce?

I noticed that today we did not get even a single robocall, though on any given day they usually number around 10. I also noticed that today is both Good Friday and Passover and I was wondering if it was more than a coincidence and that the callers declared a truce on this religious holiday. I cannot imagine that they have such sensitivities given that they are willing to annoy the hell out of people. And also, many of the places where these calls originate are overseas and thus may not have many Christian or Jewish employees who take today off.

On the other hand, today I got a sudden influx of spam comments on the blog, something that occurs very rarely.

I was curious if any readers also noted an absence of robocalls today.

    Not really.
    But the Astrologers have stopped calling since I accused them of demon worship.

    No, because I never received any in my entire life.

    My cellphone died a few weeks ago. At that time, I was getting anywhere from two to four robocalls a day. I spent two weeks without an active cellphone. In the three weeks since I got my phone working again, I think I’ve had two robocalls total. I don’t know what to make of this.
