Comments:What part of NO is confusing these people? I do not need nor want any phone calls from people I did not personally invite to contact me or who can demonstrate to me that they have a legitimate purpose for contacting me, legitimacy to be determined BY ME. I do not need telephone solicitations ( prerecorded or otherwise) from politicians, solicitors for charity or business, etc. If I have a need for a service, I am quite capable of seeking contact with businesses or other organizations who may provide that service. If I decide that I need more information , I will call them and ask them for it. If I did not call and ask for information , a price quote, etc. I have no desire to have a conversation with them. I hang up on those people before they ever have a chance to give their spiel. If they are persistent, I have been known to make a vow NEVER to purchase their products. If a charitable organization sells or otherwise shares my personal information with other organizations, I can assure them that neither organization will ever see a dime in contribution from me. I would like for all the political campaigns to understand that not once in my life has their prerecorded message had any effect on my choice at the polls. That is a total waste of funds and time for them and for me. I do not know what else I can say to emphasize to you that I am serious about not wanting intrusions on my personal time for whatever purpose they may think is of vital importance to me.. I consider it to be as intrusive as if they had barged in my front door and started shouting it at me in person. NO CALL means NO CALL. That is not very complicated to normal, everyday people. Tell those people that I recommend that they find another line of work.
