Comments:In all cases explicit permission, i.e. I, Karen XXXXX hereby authorize the X and Such Corporation, Inc. to contact me at home about products and services, is the only permissible avenue by which anyone should be telemarketed, if their number is on the "do not call list" already. This sort of behavior on the part of telemarketer WILL generate a backlash against the companies involved. I have a form by my phone that gets the pertinent information about a company, and they WILL be complained to about their interruption of my home's peace. I come home to my house to find peace, not to be sold to. I can assure you I have already pledged NEVER to purchase anything over the phone...it smacks of sleaziness, and is offensive to my privacy. I daresay it is anti-American. Thank you for considering my words.
