Comments:Approval of telemarketing calls as long as they are recorded negates the purpose of the original do-not-call list. Through technology, an industry has grown up around the invasion of privacy in my home. The telemarketing calls is simply the electronic equivalent of door-to-door solicitation. Something that the community I live in has an ordinance against. I and everyone else that signed up for the do-not-call list has specifically stated that we do not want unsolicited calls. Now an industry is asking my government to legalize an action that I specifically stated through my entry into the do-not-call list that I have no interest in participating. Allowing recorded calls is no different than allowing a live call. It is an unwanted invasion into my home.
