Business think tank, Direct Marketing Directions, has released their findings on the worldwide effect of Do not call lists throughout the English-speaking world based on six months worth of research and interviews.

I have to say that my gut response is “screw them” - these are people who make their living harassing other people... I just don’t feel sorry for them
Yes, if only salesmen were allowed to phone us day and night, the economy would still be booming!
ROFL. Shakespeare said kill the lawyers...I say kill the telemarketers!
This sets off the BS detectors. I can’t imagine shutting down telemarketers hurting the economy in any big way. Who in the hell buys anything from a telemarketer?
I’d say about the same percentage that buys something from an email spammer.
%#&* them. I'll get rid of my damm phone first. Next it will be cell phones.
It’s just another way to get our money.
I’m having a real tough time worrying about the telemarketers.
We’re on the ‘do not call’ list and haven’t been harassed by them for several years. It’s been great. However, every charity in the world has our phone number, not to mention the campaign ‘bots that were constantly calling. Our phone died two weeks ago, and we decided to get ‘caller id’. Best thing we ever did!
I call BS with a capital B.
I hate getting recorded messages on my Cell (well, I hate it on my landline as well, but at least that doesn’t cost me any money).
I don’t know if I could vote to convict if I was on the jury of someone accused of kneecapping one of them.
I’ve stopped answering the phone because everyone wants something from me....even my kids!
I think they were talking about economic damage caused by telemarketers who lost their jobs.
Yeah, I know, cry me a river...
I was polled a dozen times in the last month. All legal, of course. Made me cranky.
I just don’t care if they lost the crappy job of bugging people. Too bad, it was a bad, made up job that should be gone.
I don’t want to be called by telemarketers. I’m not going to buy the junk. Now I don’t have to listen to the sales pitches.
The economy would be booming even more if these people could just break into my house while I was here and directly steal my money. So I guess that should be allowed too in the name of economic growth.
LOL! I hear you.
