Sigh, many people seem to be thinking that SHAKEN and STIR are going to solve the problem of illegal robocalling. They won't. At least, not any more than YouMail and it's ilk. They're just some new tools, but we already know that the bad guys will work around them. Even if they were to be effective, implementation is along way off.

If we want to do something about illegal robocalls, it needs to be done by the carriers. Stop them at the source. All they really need to do is enforce their existing terms of service, which state that their customers not do anything illegal. If traceback and shutdown took hours/days instead of weeks/months/years, the problem would simply go away.
