Do Not … List

Posted · 6 Comments

Some of you may remember this brilliant bit of legislation called The Do Not Call list.

Yeah, our government got together and realized that Americans were getting annoyed by telemarketers. So they made a list, checked it twice and this was going to reduced those phone calls.

Those callers exempt from that call list:
-Non-profit organizations
-Companies you’ve done business with in the past 18 months
-Politicians.

Who do I get unsolicited calls from? Who are the ONLY people that call me?
-Non-profit organizations
-Companies you’ve done business with in the past 18 months
-Politicians.

So that was ineffective.

And in the spirit of being ineffective – I propose the Do Not Spy List.

Here’s how it works:

There’s a list. You put your name on it. That means that you don’t want to be spied on.

Those exempt from this list:
-Non-profit organizations
-Companies you’ve done business with in the past 18 months
-Politicians.

I think I’ve got a handle on this. I should run for office.

    And in the case of Abramoff, the company you’ve done business with in the past 18 months might also be a politician.

    How about calling your party the New Sardonicism?

    But how do I know the “Do Not Spy” list isn’t just a clever ruse to figure out who they should really spy on by who wants to be on the list?

    Kato, that’s how I felt when I got a spam email about the Do Not Call List…

    Don’t tell me they have your e-mail, too? You’re doomed!
