In another thread, Bear mentioned that his landline is a honeypot for junk calls. Mine is too, but I don't answer unless i recognize the caller.
This week I heard about "ringless voicemail". It doesn't seem to have a following for cold calling yet. What would be a legit use for this technology. If they don't need to talk to you synchronously, isn't mail or email a better channel?

I am guessing that it is being used to get-around violating the Do Not Call List rules since you are net technically calling anyone.
Also, there is no real technology behind it. Most wireline and wireless providers have a feature to where you can access the voicemail system using your credentialsm and then silently leave a voice message for someone else served by the same provider by dialing their 10-digit telephone number.
