Do you have any freaking idea how much it costs - and I'm talking tax money here... hence YOUR money... MY money - to have any kind of a provincial, state or federal agency run an association and administer a registry? Is it really that big a giant bloody deal to ignore your phone, or answer it, say "no", and hang up... better yet, answer it, say "one moment please", put it down and go have dinner?
Just because people are pissing about telemarketers we have the ND-BleedingHeart-P pushing a NoCall-Registry... trying to ride the coattails of the recent fed move in the states, which was a move to capitalize on the climate created by several state sponsored NoCall-Registries. Geezus... what a gravy train... I think I'll get in on the NoCall-Registry bandwagon... bah! Believe me, it's a sink hole of money to set this stuff up, let alone administer. And I promise you that you will get sick of the sob stories about all the people put out of work by the registry... You will be wishing nobody had ever mentioned the concept when those companies hurt by this registry are receiving EVEN MORE TAX DOLLARS as compensation when what they all needed in the first place was people to NOT BUY SHIT from them so they go out of business the old fashioned way.
Don't forget, the telemarketers that you hate will have to "pay" to get the list so they can "not call you" and when they do call, and get caught, they'll have to cough up a $15,000 fine... so, they say, it'll be fully funded by the marketing companies. Please now picture me doing one of those "coughs into hand saying BULLSHIT" things... and the National Gun Registry will be gun-owner funded too... HA!
So that you don't have to get yer ass out of a chair and muster the internal fortitude to tell someone on your phone to go fuck themselves we are all going to pay millions and millions of dollars in taxes to set up a system that;
a) doesn't stop your bank from selling your number to any number of companies flogging everything from toasters to RRSPs... because you're a "pre-existing customer" and
b) doesn't actually do shit but create more rules to be administered, broken and enforced.
Where the hell is Emperor Tao when we need him... He came into power in ancient china by claiming that he would cut crime in half the day he was made emperor. So what did he do when they gave him the fancy robes? He whipped out his sword and cut the law book in half and burned the half that fell off the table "there... half the crimes just disappeared". No law should be made, no rule put in place, to protect peoples right to be a suck. You can ... you should enforce that yourself.

phew... ah... that felt good. :D
Ok... off to have a day... see ya.
