To The Editor:
I have read and listened to the comments from all the groups opposed to the “Do Not Call Registry” and there is something I do not understand. These are people that have gone to quite a bit of trouble to say, “Do not call me. I do not want to talk to you. I dont care what about. The nicest thing I will do is hang up on you.”
Why would anyone want to call these people? I have been in the insurance business over 35 years and feel that if I knew the names of the people that did not want to talk to me, this would have served me almost as well as a list of those that did want to talk to me. I do not want to waste my time or someone elses, and I have no desire to offend someone as that very rarely leads to a circumstance that produces positive results.
This list will not impede an economic recovery because these people have said, quite simply, “I not only will not buy from you, I dont even want to talk to you.” Not having a list will not change this. It is just an excuse to continue to bother people that do not want to talk to you and have said so.
