Awhile back I ranted about Telemarketers, and I spoke about the Do not call service that was in the works. Well, it was launched, unsuccessfully, yesterday.
Unsuccessful is is a bit of an understatement.
According to the Globe and Mail, demand was so high the CRTC had to publish a note on its site advising people to try later.
Local radio stations and media outlets have been allowing consumers to rant and rave about the inability of the site to handle the load, and question the effectiveness of the program. That aside, I have to wonder, would it not be easier to have everyone on the "Do not call list" by default- and only those interested in receiving calls should sign up on a "Go ahead call me, I've got no friends list".
Surely that would be easier than the clusterfuck that was yesterday.
