I think that the government should regulate a Do Not Solicit list for television commercials.
Commercials are invading my space when I'm trying to watch TV and they are irritating. There should be a list can sign up for that would keep advertisers from being allowed to show their ads on my TV.
Use the same solution I use. Don't watch TV.
I do agree though. I'd love to have a Do Not Mail list so that all the junk bulk mail is not stuffed into my mailbox. I've stopped all the catalogs that I don't want to see, but the box still gets crammed full of Pennysavers and other newsprint flyers I have no interest in seeing.
The companies pay for it therefore the cycle continues. They pay for the junk, the post office delivers the junk, I throw the junk in the trash, the trash guy hauls it to the recycler, the printing company makes more newsprint from it so that the original company can pay for the print job again so that the post office can deliver it, etc.
At some point, someone somewhere has to stop and say, this is not making sense. There has to be a better way to make use of this money and these resources.
Same thing is happening with the Do Not Call list and telemarketing.
