Don't Call Me!

The National Do Not Call Registry goes live today! This is great news, as we live in a state which doesn't have a don't-call registry (check yours) and our home phone gets as many as twenty commercial calls a day.

One disappointment: long distance, banking, and insurance companies (and airlines!?), charities, and political organizations are still allowed to call, as are companies you already do business with. Too bad.

Addendum: Plus ... telephone surveyors? I first interpreted this to mean linesmen checking on connection status. But no, I'm afraid it's good old fashioned Market Research. Yuck.


I signed up for that. effective in october for me. boo yah.
