I want to comment on an article in your May 19 issue ("Do not call list makes telemarketing harder").
I understand very well the right of all people not to have their privacy invaded by sales calls, and I agree with it. However, I believe that if there is a no-call list and businesses are going to be fined if they call those people, the list should be made available to businesses at no charge.
If the government is going to fine people for doing something they are not supposed to do, shouldn't they be advised as to what they are not supposed to do?
Is this a form of extortion by the government; i.e., if you call these people, you will be fined but we're not going to tell who they are unless you pay for the list?
