Just tell them you're not interested and close the door. Or don't open it.
I get that they're annoying, but remember they actually believe what they are selling as truth, and even if it's annoying they do actually care
about you. I used to want to have a story about opening the door naked or debating them until they swore off the door to door practice, but that's
incredibly immature and its not going to work.
There's no sense making an ass out of yourself. You are making an ass out of yourself if you do anything more than say "Not interested" and close
the door. You won't win a debate (if anything they win because you wasted your time and they think any time spent trying to convert you is
worthwhile), you won't scare them off (unless you do something illegal, and you'll be facing the consequences) and if you make a scene, you just
waste time and energy needlessly.
They annoyed me to the point that I put up a NO SOLICITING sign. Then I found out that it's not viewed as soliciting by the govt. or them. That
won't help. I don't think any sign you put up is going to help if they can access your door, they're going to knock, and all the NO TRESPASSING
signs in the world aren't going to help unless you have a fence and access is restricted. At least that's how it is in the US. I think there was
even a Supreme Court ruling about it.
Be classy, people are annoying everywhere. You look like a douche yelling at a telemarketer and you look like a douche yelling at people trying to
convert you. I suppose this is different if they are incredibly pushy or something, but in my experience just saying "Not interested" even through
a closed door is enough.
