Most telemarketers are easy to spot by the delay in their response to my hello. I just hang up the phone before they say a word.
Once in a while if I'm in a bad mood, or expecting a call, I'll let them speak and if they say they're calling from Microsoft, I simply tell them to F off and then I hang up. I've never had a 3am call from a telemarketer, but if I keep telling enough of them to F off, I might eventually get a few (better than at 8 or 9am when I'm often sleeping).
