Comments:Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES do I want to receive any telemarketing. If I have done business with a company in the past 18 months and that company wants to communicate with me - they need to ASK MY PERMISSION to call me - and should not be able to either seek this info or have any other discourse through telemarketing. I consider it an invasion of my privacy and signed up for both the national list of do not call as well as the newer cell phone list. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW TELEMARKETERS METHODS FOR FURTHER HARASSMENT. I work in the marketing industry and strongly believe that this is a negative and inappropriate means for establishing, developing and nurturing customer relationships. I think that both the FCC and FTC should agree to protect consumers from this gross invasion of privacy - and particularly from the potential of the myriad of messages that can be generated via electronic means. I hope that you take my comments seriously. I know that I am not alone in my opinion. Thank you.
