Comments:Allowing companies to send recorded messages to phone numbers on the DO NOT CALL LIST is unacceptable for two reasons: 1. It makes no difference whether a telemarketing message is recorded or a real human; neither is wanted and invades my private life. 2. All calls to a phone number (recorded messages or human) reduces the functionally of my phone by making it unavailable for incoming calls and using Answering Machine memory. As the telemarketing organizations are using resources that I am paying for I should be able to charge them for that service. I would allow them to contact me if I could charge them a fee. Using the American free enterprise system would eliminate all of this nonsense.
