Upload list of numbers to block using wild-cards for ranges

I'd love to be able to upload a list of calls I'd like to block, and be able to also use ranges of numbers in the form of blacklists in cases where scammers/robo dialers have a range of phone numbers that they use.  (This mechanism would also solve ability to block entire area codes or caller IDs with bogus numbers.  Like 288-???-???? would block all of 288 area code, or ???-1??-???? would block numbers like 972-123-4567  which can't possibly exist because of the 1 after area code.  These blacklists could be combined with whitelists where you also have a rule that allows certain area codes, or for that matter whitelists could let somebody only receive phone calls from certain numbers.

Having whitelists in addition to blacklists gives people flexibility to control phone calls that go way beyond non VOIP providers allow.

Of course these whitelists and blacklists need to be uploadable and downloadable so one can make bulk changes at a time.   Doing numbers one at a time on a webpage takes way too much time.
