I simply cannot wait until this is in effect. When telemarketers do strike, I ask to be taken off their call list, to which I usually get some sort of mumbled acknowlegment and very little reassurance they will do what I asked. Some of them are very pushy and have even continued their pitch to the point of harassment, not taking "no" for an answer and even calling back repeatedly.

But I know everyone has this same complaint.

However one bad thing I noted about this registry is that long-distance phone companies are exempt, and AT&T is possibly the worse offender at my house. Oh well.

Preregister for the Do Not Call list at the California state Attoney General's web site. You can enter up to four personal and mobile numbers. They'll just submit your info to the feds when they get their act together.

Update: the feds have got their act together. Persons already registered through the CA do not call list supposedly do not need to re-register. See http://donotcall.gov/ and http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2003/06/dnc/ca.htm.
