Alternately, and perhaps more correctly, we should be doing whatever
is necessary so that the other end's client knows we can't be
contacted via voice/video and doesn't even offer the option.
(Provided, of course, that the service has a way to communicate this.)


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
