Please, Keep Not Calling (Thank You!)
It’s been three years since the federal government passed one of its better pieces of legislation in recent memory, creating the Do Not Call Registry which is a free way of dramatically reducing junk phone solicitations. At the time, registrations were set to expire every three years. When I signed up my phone number, I stuck a note in my calendar for today (three years later) to renew my registration. I was planning on blogging about it to remind the rest of the world, too.
To my great surprise, when I went to the site today, I saw this note:
Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008.
That’s two great pieces of legislation. What will they think of next?
