I have a low tolerance for telemarketers, especially those who scrape
technical lists or databases. One test I have is to immediately ask,
"Is this a sales call?"
Anything other than a forthright "Yes" gets nowhere. Weasel words don't
count. If the first thing they tell me is a lie, I don't want to do
business with them. If they're honest I might give them a minute or two
to pitch their wares.
It's surprising how people go out of their way to deny that it's a sales
call, and then start trying to sell something.
