In the past, I even resorted to calling the person I was talking with on
the phone and continue to transmit on the air to make the miscreants go
nuts trying to figure out HOW we could still communicate and understand
each other.  I agree 100%, do not acknowledge them at all.  Act as if they
are not there, or you are not hearing them.  It will eventually frustrate
them to the point they will give it up.
