One possibility is that the Daily News contracted out with a marketing company, who came up with this strategy and sent out the mailing with the full approval of the newspaper. Anything to put butts in the seats - or, in this case, to put a finger on the phone dial.

Like D4Fan's example, they will always increase their odds of sale if they can just get you to want to call them, instead of them calling you.

Illegal? Iffy. Deceptive? Yes - as are many accepted legitimate advertisements today.

Speaking of which, I watched a few YT vids last night by some hilarious "Russian Hack" guy, doing some independent testing of "the amazing Flex-seal", both the tape and the goop. Result - the products did not stop the leaks, although it did slow them up quite a bit. You don't suppose Phil Swift has been less than truthful with us all this time?

Still waiting for examples Brian.

DDN is relentless. I went to Kroger the other day and they had a booth set up right when you walk in and out of the store. There’s no avoiding it. Well I don’t make eye contact just like I don’t do at malls when they pester me. Well they said “hi sir” blah blah blah and I continued to walk ignoring then. The guy, who was probably in his 70s or even 80s followed me into the store and kept telling me how he can offer me this and that. I finally lost it. I had my daughter with me and I was buying a thermostat for her because she was running a fever. I was in a hurry. I told him off in front of like 10 ppl and continued with my shopping. On the way out, another guy proceeded to do the same. I told him to F off.

Threatening to beat people up certainly can be a crime. Do you seriously think you can legitimately intimidate and threaten physicial harm to others?

You need more than a statement, otherwise we would all be in jail. How many times have similar things been said on here and other than a possible suspension from the board, I have not heard of anyone being arrested. Heck, P-Boy has threatened and been threatened many times on hear.

LOL. That would be sweet if you could install a thermostat on a sick kid running a fever.

I've encountered the same thing at Kroger. I just usually leave them in the dust. Never had one stalk me too far past their little booth though.

Hope your kid is feeling better.

I didn't have the heart to call that out but it brought a smile. Maybe a first child.

Well, obviously it depends on context, but you might not need more than a statement.

Context is more than a statement but I think we agree and are just talking around the point.
