Please call me at home after 6...

The Australian federal government recently launched the Do Not Call Register in a effort to combat telemarketing. A great idea, I’m sure you’d agree. There are three ways to register - online, calling 1300 792 958, or sending in a postal application.

However, I’m far too lazy to organise my number to be listed with any of these methods. (I’m much the same with holidays and my telephone service provider.) I wish the DNCR would be a bit more proactive (like my current telephone provider was, and that lovely Malaysian woman who sold me a timeshare at Noosa) and provide a fourth option. Have someone call me at home on a weeknight to inform me of the valuable and obligation free service provided by the DNCR
