  • I have a "No Religious Soliciting" sign. We don't get many people selling stuff, but for a while we had 5-8 knocks on the door every week from Mormon Missionaries. I wouldn't have minded if they were courteous when I told them no thanks, but some were VERY pushy and insulting, so I got mad!

  • Nope. I just don't open the door for the people.

  • I have a No Religious Soliciting and a No Soliciting Sign. It's rediculous at how many people come through my neighbor hood.

  • We don't have one yet but we are going to get one soon. I had to get a "No Trespassing" sign already because we live near a road and when i am by myself here with the kids I don't like people just coming up to my door all the time and ringing the door bell. Especially early in the morning. It's rude to me. I have a baby that gets woken up all the time.

  • No, but I have a dog with a ferocious bark though! Boss barks at everyone she sees through the window and you can hear her outside. She's really a big 50 pound baby, but sounds like she'd rip some limbs off! I've seen people through the window head up the porch, hear her and turn around. No sign needed here! :-)

  • No, but I plan on putting one up soon. (I also need a "Please don't ring the bell" sign. :)

  • Yeah but the solicitors seem to think they are above the sign, particularly the ones who distribute religious and political material. I guess in their minds every leaflet handed out just "may" make a difference and screw the sign.
