>they've implemented a feature in Android to just blacklist phone numbers as spam in one click when a new number calls you

Are you saying the feature is that you can block phone numbers? Or is there some central list?

It can't be a central list due to all the spoofing going on. Almost all spam calls are spoofed these days from what I've seen.


If there's no central list, then I don't see how implementing the ability for users to block numbers is non-neutral. There's no central enforcement or organization, it's just a private thing.


I don't know, but if they start blocking every random number in your area code it will cause a problem.
