I sent Comcast an email requesting that they put me on a “do not contact” list so that their salespeople would stop coming by to attempt to sell me cable tv. I explained very clearly and succinctly that I don’t want cable tv, and the salespeople, in addition to giving me incorrect information, are wasting my time.
Got a reply a few hours later, and I’m not quite sure whether I have been opted out, or not. You tell me. (The highlighting is mine.)

I really appreciate that Gerardo is “glad to assist and help to guide you to this information in a timely manner.” and that he is “glad to assist you with this matter. Rest assured that I will provide you with the information regarding your feedback.” What’s missing is the “information” he’s so happy to provide. Am I opted-out or not? I guess I’ll have to ask the next Comcast salesperson who shows up at my door.
