I found a really neat data source online on unwanted robocalls that the FCC (Federal Communications Commission, a United States government agency) has created and published openly.

As you might know, CPython, the most commonly used implementation of Python,
uses a stack based virtual machine to run Python scripts. This means that
Python script ASTs are never directly executed. Instead, CPython compiles
script files into byte code files first (
.pyc files). This allows for some
optimizations during the byte code compilation step and shipping of byte code
files to end customers instead of raw scripts. This is useful to make reverse
engineering hard. Ableton Live includes a
CPython interpreter for its MIDI hardware integration. It does not let users
look at the actual hardware integration scripts though. Instead, all hardware
integration scripts can only be found in their compiled

Make sure that your machine has aiohttp and Python 3.5 installed.
