Comments:I do not want business establishments to use my telephone or its answering machine for advertising purposes. They should only call my home phone if they are responding to a specific contact from me which requires an answer. The statement by marketing persons that businesses will not overstep the bounds because of propriety is something I do not believe. Rigid rules are necessary to keep them from utilizing whatever means they can to get out their advertising. The Do Not Call Registry should be upheld strictly.
