Do-Not-Call Lists ('01)

This letter of mine was published in the LATimes in August 2001:

[My best letter (so far) on marketing]

Before a telemarketer completes two sentences I say, "I'm not
interested; please put me on your do-not-call list," and I hang up.

If they used a state-wide "do-not-call" list, they wouldn't have to
waste their time calling me, and I wouldn't be annoyed by their calls.

It's a win-win situation.

I can only guess that the "influential business interests" opposing
SB771 arrogantly believe that they're the exception: If they could
call me, they're such good salespeople that I'd not only listen to
their pitch, but I'd buy and buy.

I have news for them: It ain't gonna happen.

I emphatically support SB771.
