Comments:No!!!!! We're just now finally settling in and enjoying uninterrupted meals at home. First of all, what constitutes an "established business relationship"? Do *I* get to define that? If I have had a satisfactory business relationship with a company, I'll call them if I need anything else. If I have had an unsatisfactory business relationship with a company, I don't want to hear from them again. And it's not like I wouldn't know their latest offerings in either case: I'll see plenty of their other ads. I don't pay for telephony services to provide yet another vector for advertisers to barge into my life. How much clearer can the public be? We've opted into do-not-call lists. That means, "Do not call." Please don't allow the collective will of these consumers to be subverted. Thank you.
