Comments:I am absolutely against intrusions by solicitors uninvited into my home, live or pre-recorded. It does not matter if I have had a "business relationship" with a company. That often means to them that I have called with a question or simply bought an item from them. That does not give them the right to start interrupting my work, sleep, meals, and private time at home. Please do not loosen the do not call rules. If anything, tighten them to prevent political calls and solicitations from charities by phone. I feel very strongly about this. The fact that business interests have strong lobbying and funds to campaign with should not cause government to do the wrong thing.
