Well, after all the last minute legal wrangling, the US national "Do not call list" went into effect on October 1.  For some reason, I haven't seen any "day two" press commenting on the reduced phone calls, lamenting loss of jobs, or whatever. Maybe I'm just not reading the right news sources.
However, from personal experience, I can say that it appears to be working.  I used to have to unplug my home office phone line from the wall every night; "Kenneth Delotte" received between three and five telemarketer calls daily.  Last few days, there hasn't been a single phone call on that line outside of business hours -- as it should be.  My home number is equally annoyance-free, though we didn't get many calls there as it's not published.
Is it working out this well all over the country?
