Would this include Jehovah's Witnesses? Please?

I'm about to put a note on my front door that says "Dear nice Jehovas Witnesses,
I'm sorry, I appreciate your persistance, but we simply aren't interested. You seem like nice people, but we aren't in the market for a new religion. Thanks."
Seriously, they've been by like 5x in the past 1.5 months. I guess I'm too nice.

In the past month alone I've had Mormons, Jehovas Witnesses, window washers, people trying to persuade me to change gas companies and a few questionable charities. I wanted to put up a NO SOLICITING sign on our door, but my husband thought it would be tacky.
I would welcome a "Do Not Knock" registry in our neighbourhood
And as always, a loyal dub makes their presense felt.........

The right to knock on door has been legally established in a recent Supreme Court case Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York Inc. v. Village of Stratton, Ohio, 2002. While whole towns do not have the right to legally bar door to door visitors, householders or residents are free to place signage or request that people not visit them at their door. Remember that this right is intertwined in this country with freedom of speech, which many want to use for themselves but sometimes do not want to give to others who they do not agree with
