They should shadow-block them! If you block them it gives the spammers feedback that the number they're using is burned and they will cycle onward to more numbers. If you shadow-block them instead and hang up after a "typical" number of seconds it'll make it much harder for them to know if they've reached an actual person or are being spambinned.

Choice 1) you install the certificate, your traffic is snooped

Choice 2) you don't install the certificate, your browser throws up certificate warnings, you accept them, your traffic is snooped

Choice 2) you don't install the certificate, your browser throws up certificate warnings, you don't accept them, no traffic to snoop
