I got two robo calls last night asking me to dial one or eight (to be removed from their list, apparently not good enough to be on the do-not-call list anymore--what's up with that? IMHO any response on my part keeps me on the list so I just hang up). One was for siding and one was for giving blood. Sooooo annoying.

The requirement is part of amendments to the agency's Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR) that were announced a year ago. After September 1, sellers and telemarketers who transmit prerecorded messages to consumers who have not agreed in writing to accept such messages will face penalties of up to $16,000 per call.
Why does it take so long for the feds to implement such rules? Seems like it gives the bad guys time to continue to operate and think up new ways to beat the system.
