State debuts its ‘do-not-call’ list
The aim is to provide protection from those pesky telemarketers

Linda Och of Knoxville was thrilled yesterday to put her name on the new statewide “do not call” list. It means that she no longer has to screen her telephone calls to avoid those annoying telemarketers. She had been getting as many as 30 calls a day. One came on Christmas Eve. She said a phone salesman lured her into a credit card scam that cost her $400. Never again. “We’re all victims of telemarketers, I think,” she said as she registered her phone number on the do-not-call list. “This is the best thing since sliced bread. I’m thrilled.”

To complement this wonderful service, we need the following:

  1. the other 49 states to follow suit
  2. a “Do Not Email” list to deter unsolicited email marketing spam
  3. a “Do Not Snail Mail” list – see above
