Comments:Persons like me who elected to be included in the Do Not Call Registry want just that - DO NOT CALL. I spend the day answering the telephone. I sure don't want to do it in the evenings. The only thing that is worse than being interrupted by a sales person is being interrupted by a machine. I'm incredulous that anybody could think that I would feel it's ok to be interrupted by a computer. I would also like to see the no call exclusion lifted for firms with which I already do business. If I want another loan, another phone, or additonal CATV channels, I'll ask for it, thank you very much. Furthermore, I was inundated with computerized messages from candidates in the last election. It was so unpleasant that during the week before the next election I will be leaving my telephone off the hook. I've also gotten illegal computerized promtional calls from travel agents attempting to sell me cruises. I was under the impression that this practice was illegal -- telemarketing to cellular phones. Don't call me -- I'll call you.
