Re: FTC Do Not Call List

I'm trying to dictate what people can call me on MY phone...

The difference between telemarketing and spam, IMHO, is that telemarketers make my phone ring, and that is something that demands immediate attention. That bothers me a lot. Much more than spam that might happen to be in the inbox when I check for it at my leisure. (I don't have automated email retrieval). I guess I have been fortunate that I am not innundated with spam. As some of my ISP provided email accounts that I guarded meticulously, and only sent to friends, leaked to (or were guessed by) spammers, I switched to gmail, which seems to have wonderful spam protection and spam reporting ease. Click a button and it's gone. Telemarketers, OTOH, are difficult to get rid of.
