Comments:NO, NO, NO - emphatically NO for loosening restrictions on telemarketers who relentlessly suck the enjoyment out of the relaxing enjoyment of my home. I have received up to 2 calls per day over a period of 4 months from just one (of many) telemarketer; hundreds of calls ! and they never stop until you finally give up and talk to them. They always ask for someone else first; that is how they get around the "Do Not Call" registry. If I say that my number is on the registry, they tell me that they can call because someone gave them that number. Then I will ask them how long ago since I have had this number for over 6 months and if the imaginary person really wanted to talk to them - why havent they returned the call after 25 messages and 100 listings on their caller ID. That is when they hang up on me. This is wrong. Absolutely wrong. And what about the "identified" messages - you can't call them back and ask to be removed because they don't answer at that number. so you just have to accept all the unsolicited phone messages. WRONG. I have a right to my privacy and they should have to know specifically who they are calling, with a CURRENT phone list. I am never the person they are calling for. I think they make up names just to try to get you to talk to them. NO NO NO NO NO. Is that clear ?
