@93 is spot on. These guys are aggressive. I can't walk to lunch without someone jumping in front of me trying to hand me a flyer. I don't expect them to have perfect recall and remember the last time I said "no", so maybe I need an opt-out card taped to my forehead.
Obviously we can't rely on common decency. So maybe we could pass a law that forbids certain behaviors for solicitors. Such a law should include, at least: do not move your body or limbs to interfere with someone's direction of travel.
Also, it might be a impossible to legislate, but I'd also like it if they would give up after I tell them "no" the first time. And please don't interrupt the conversation I'm having with my friend.
