Comments:EVERYONE who is not employed in telemarketing or otherwise financially compensated by telemarketers HATES all forms of unsolicited commercial intrusion. We hate email spam, we hate internet browser popup spam, we hate text messaging spam, and we hate PHONE SPAM! We hate sequential autodialers that call our cell phones and waste our air time. We hate being interrupted in the few moments we are able to relax at home. To pretend that some hypothetical ''pre-existing business relationship'' exists between a telemarketer and a citizen is offensive legal sophistry. DO NOT EXPAND TELEMARKETERS' ABILITY TO ENCROACH ON OUR PRECIOUS FAMILY TIME. We hate them all, and the unbridled greed for which they stand. Their permission to impose on our private time should be further curtailed, NOT expanded!
