There aren't many that do make calls then it seems. I am on the NDNC list and I don't get many from charities. Just three a year. Politics only during elections which I expect. I never get them from people I already do business with. By that I mean as a consumer. I get email from them if I gave it to them. Nothing from debt collectors.
I get a lot less telemarketing calls since I signed, except for a rash of recent ones from spring through september that were not authorized.
