Constant solicitations frustrating, irritating

Have this newspaper's readers experienced a notable increase in solicitations by telephone, as well as a plethora of robo-calls? We certainly have.

Rarely a day goes by that we don't have to answer one or more calls trying to sell home security systems or other unwanted nuisance offers. The paid solicitors collecting for the Sheriff's Benevolent Fund (or the likes thereof) seem to go on forever, despite the fact that our phone numbers have been registered with the "Do Not Call" list that is provided by the Federal Communications Commission. The calls seem to come at times that are most inconvenient, many after 8 p.m.

It's a constant source of frustration, and I have no answers as to how to diminish the number of incoming annoyances. Any suggestions?
