Here's the line that I find interesting: "The telemarketing industry estimates the do-not-call list could cut its business in half, costing it up to $50 billion in sales each year."
Now, these bozos who delight in interrupting our dinners claim that they don't want to bother people who don't want to be called (links to .pdf file - see first comment by Volner). If that's true, how does the above quote from the story make any sense at all? It can only mean that many people who claim that they don't like telemarketers actually listen to their pitches, and get sucked in. Be tough, people!
