Oh, I like that. That demonstration is much better than the doomsday scenario I expected.

Couple more questions if I may.
1) What's to stop a telemarketer from putting a call down as a "yes" instead of the "no" they got? There've been cases in my country (Finland) where telemarketers would call people and offer them a product, get a "no thank you" and send the product anyway. This particularly has been happening with a company selling "subscriptions" to socks and shaving supplies. They sell it as a free sample whereas it's actually a subscription you automatically agree to unless you call and cancel, but their phone numbers aren't actually manned. So you either pay or the bill goes to a debt collector. My grandfather got hit with this shit.
2) What's the fastest way to get a telemarketer to give up and end the call? "No thank you" doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

Does the company you work for and who solicits purchases also handle the billing for them? If not, and I am called cold by a telemarketer and buy something, how do you make the distinction clear to me that I am not in fact entering an agreement with you, but with a third party? Furthermore, if your firm is hired by, say, a cellular operator to push their new product, do they grant you access to their customer records?

Nice, very nice.

For some reason which I cannot fully explain, I was thoroughly disappointed to note that, as I ordered a box set of one of my favourite books of all time, the Harry Potter series, that they were categorised as "young adult". I always thought they were "fantasy". Suddenly, they were YA, and I felt like I had no business enjoying them so much.
