Comments:I want no one to call from any marketing or related type companies unless they have my written permission to be called. That should be very clear and without loopholes. I or any citizen should not be placed in the situation of having to give written permission not to be called. That's a huge invasion of privacy. Having to use caller I.D. is another unnecessary burden placed on the phone owner. I'm getting reluctant to even answer the phone fearing the need to hang up on some unwanted caller. Many senior citizens cannot afford the extra fees required to protect themselves from pushy intruders. If I need gas I GO to the gas station on my own. Enough said. Thanks for the opportunity to speak out.
