Tell them that you have absolutely no interest in doing business with their
company now and in the future and that any future calls will be considered
harassment.  If that doesn't work, explain to them that they have an
inferior product to that of their competitors and that you are more likely
to utilize their competitors products instead of theirs and if they try to
tell you the benefits of their product stop them short and say it doesn't
matter if their competitor's product isn't as good, you will use them simply
because they don't call you.  Or call them a doody face and be done with it.

If their number stays the same each call, call block them.  That seems to
work for me on most telemarketing issues.

Subject: OT: How to stop UltraDNS sales people calling


I am really fed up of calls from UltraDNS - we seem to get them every
few days.  We don't need their product.  

We've tried saying no, and additionally we've tried putting people on
hold indefinitely, trying to be enough of a nuisance to drop off their
sales call list (works with UK telcos - try it).

I just had a guy on hold for 18 minutes before taking him off hold to
say that we didn't want their product, and could he please stop calling.

He told me he would still calling until he got through to the right
person.  I am the right person.

In the interest of Anglo-American relationships - any Neustar people on
list willing to help ?
