Re: Perhaps

" the extra step of pressing *5 only assures that a human is on the line who won't be stymied by it."

Except that (round these parts at least) telemarketters and other phone parasites don't have access to a dial; it's either entirely robotic, the fleshie is only there to do the talking and gets the phone calls handed to them by a robotic dialer one after the other. So, unable to press the required "5*" combination.
