...not only is the telephone number here registered with the TPS, but they've been repeatedly asked not to call with their regular "did you get the paper" survey. Now, this time I got a promise that the number would be removed from the database they use...

As I understand it, just buying a database doesn't absolve you from not checking that the numbers are on the do not call list. If it happens again they're getting reported. I'm through with being "polite and understanding" to them.

http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tpsC/html/legal.asp is very informative - basically you need to continually cleanse the list to make sure it's free of TPS registrants.

Fortunately, *touches wood*, I'm fairly free of sales calls.

Personally I'm looking forward to unsolicited e-mail in the UK being banned, so that I can complain to ICSTIS and actually get a result. I think I'll also have a look at the new proposed £5/min tariff as I personally think some of the premium rate services use dodgy tactics to attract people..
