National Do Not Call Registry

by john on June 30, 2003

Back in December in No Call = No Sense I opined that the Minnesota “Do Not Call” legislation that had recently been signed by then Governor Venture made no sense and I went so far as to suggest you would be a sucker to sign up.

With the national registry now a real deal others are saying similar things:

Don’t call the Do Not Call Registry – I’m all for ending the obnoxious practice of electronically barging into the homes of strangers to get at their money. But, intentionally or not, the National Do Not Call Registry smells more like an anti-small business move than consumer protection.

Do Not Call – The FTC’s Do Not Call list has to be one of the silliest exercises that I’ve seen in a long time.

National Do Not Call Registry: Not all its cracked up to beThank you government, for yet again appearing to do something without doing anything at all.

do-not-call registry: useless. – Well, even if you buy that story, it’s still useless…

According to Feedster it appears as though most webloggers actually do view this as a good thing. Ah the innocence of youth.

John jots about the National Do Not Call registry, with a good collection of links pointing out that maybe this isn’t such a great thing after all. Electrolite mines some of the same territory.

The National Do Not Call Registry will not stop all telemarketing calls. Tell the Congress and the White House to close the loopholes in the Do Not Call List. They need to let America opt out of all unwanted calls
