Comments:1st of all I do NOT like the fact that my children get scared when answering the phone with the computerized telemarketer because they cannot recognized it is not a crank call when asking the caller's name. 2nd I do not appreciate when I am trying to disconnect from the computerized telemarketer, the disconnection does not happen immediately. 3rd, my answering machine flooded with a computerized message is INFURRATING!!! 4th, you say that the telemarketer just want to talk about an existing company that I am dealing with...In today's world most of these companies innertwine with another company, so even though I do not want to deal with say "Fisher Price", "Quacker Oats" still might contact me. 5th, this is only another reason why more people will be laid off from their jobs, because, there no longer is even a need for a telemarketer. How pitiful that the United States has stooped so low. That why so much of the country is on anti-depressants...There aren't jobs for anyone anymore..You congressmen keep giving them to robots at the same time you vote yourself a raise. But most important, I have always taught my children the phone is NOT a toy, but an EMERGENCY vessel. I'm paying GOOD money to have Call Interrupting, It is NOT for a telemarketer..It's for when I'm on hold FOREVER with Cingular or an insurance agency, or something like that, that a loved one needs to get hold of me right then & there. I am THOROUGHLY opposed to this lopehole!!!!!!
