Comments:I do not want telemarketers calling me, that is why I put my landline and cell phone numbers on the DO NOT CALL LIST. What part of DO NOT CALL is not understood here? I only accept calls from people I wish to speak to. If these telemarketers insist on calling me then, I would require an upfront 25 cent payment to be made to my telephone service provider toward the payment of my telephone bill. Otherwise, these unwanted calls will will be blocked as a standard practice. A default setting. Additionally, the valid telephone number and name of the calling party MUST BE TRANSMITTED AND DISPLAYED on the called party's Caller ID for identification purposes. Also, a human must answer the calling party telephone number on a call back basis in order to be acceptable, otherwise this number too will be blocked. Additionally, a valid mailing address must be provided for this telephone number for possible bill-back purposes. Please understand that me paying for telephone service does not give anyone the right to call me for any reason. I reserve the right to screen and block all calls to my inbound communications as well as require payment for such unsolicited calls. Furthermore, cellular communications companies must provide a call blocking service to be updated by the customer and not editable by the cellular provider and must block unsolicited inbound calls unless a minimum 25 cent per inbound call is paid prior to call connection.
