Can anyone offer any insight into why it's not trivial to block outbound
calls to these numbers?  If it's inconsequential to take the cellular
network offline, couldn't they request that the carriers blacklist these

I'm certain there's something more to it, but I don't know anything about
phone routing systems.  Anyone?
