Call Me In Five Years? How About Never?

This is irritating:

The cherished dinner hour void of telemarketers could vanish next year for millions of people when phone numbers begin dropping off the national Do Not Call list...

Numbers placed on the registry, begun in June 2003, are valid for five years. For the millions of people who signed onto the list in its early days, their numbers will automatically drop off beginning next June if they do not enroll again.
It's like that ol' marketing ploy of "free trial offer!" for which you start getting billed if you forget to cancel.

Never is a long time, but people should have that option if they don't want to muck with this annoyance every five years for the rest of their lives.
