Comments:I am absolutely opposed to this. For the first time in memorable history, my phone doesn't interrupt dinner, business, personal time etc....since the Do Not Call List became effective. It is wonderful! I am in the real estate business....a business which teaches telephone prospecting as part of the method of earning business. In spite of that, I feel that each of us has a right to our privacy. To alter this measure would be to, once again, invite intrusion. As it is, I still occasionally receive unwanted calls. We cannot change the nature of technology and it's advancement. But, we ought to have something to say about how it impacts us. If I want contact from those with whom I do business, I will give them permission, and invite it. If I do not provide that permission, then I DON'T WANT TO HEAR FROM THEM!! I CANNOT STATE THAT POINT STRONGLY ENOUGH. Thank you.
