Comments:I continue to receive phone calls even though I am on the list. Some are clearly from foreign call centers that I suspect are being used to bypass the laws today. Others feign innocence and hang up when I point out I am on the list. I am totally against any changes that loosen the restrictions further based on what I see as the desire of many companies to cheat today. They did not agree nor do I believe they are living up to the spirit of the notion that people at home do not want to rush from whatever they are doing to hear some annoying pitch for a product they do not need, cannot afford and which will probably not deliver on the value in the first place. Word of mouth is the best advertisement for legitimate products.
