Comments:I put my phone numbers on the original Do Not Call list to prevent telemarketors from calling me. If I wanted those who I already do business with to call me, I would give them my number. They all have already asked for my phone number or e-mail. I always decline because I don't want them calling me. If I want to talk to them, I will call them. They don't pay for my phone, and I don't want them bothering me. Especially a "one-time" purchase turning into months of calling me. It is bad enough that I have to deal with the ones I already have. Already, I hang up on at least 7 telemarketors a week now. I really don't need or want to have this increased, nor have my answering machine full of crap I don't want. If I wanted it, I would initiate the call. If I didn't initiate the call, I don't want them calling me. Also, if I called about a "one-time" event, I don't want to hear from them after that. To me, this will defeat the purpose of the Do Not Call registery. Plus, I shouldn't have to call the telemarketors to ask them to take my name off their lists. I don't want to talk to them. I hang up on them. It is my phone number. I pay for it not them. Plus it is my time (life) they are wasting without my permission. Thank you for your time.
