Everyone hates unsolicited phone calls. Simply put, they are to the telephone as spam is to email. With upfront appologies to any readers who may be telemarketers, they are extremely annoying and a complete waste of time and besides that, who actually buys anything from an unsolicited call?
To combat the never ending barage of calls, we now have the National Do Not Call Registry (in the US at least). You probably already know about it, you submit your number it is off limits to telemarketers who are required by law to honor your request. The only thing is registration is not permanent, you have to re-register your number every year.
So this tip is just a reminder to resubscribe your number in the event your registration is expired. After all, you don’t want to start getting any more calls do you?
