For the most part these are companies that sell the service for them,
or are independent installation companies. I have gotten a few calls
and am on the do not call list. My biggest complaint with them is
Dish Network offers its customers an option to get credits towards your
bill by getting your friends and families to join the service. What it
must mean to some people is to get an e-mail spammers list and send it
to all 500 million of their friends or post it in every newsgroup on
the net. Dish Network does not condone this, but they also will very
rarely take any action against the person or company that does it.

The only good spammer is a dead one!! Have you hunted one down today?
