Comments:*I* pay for my phone service. Why should a telemarker have the right to make unsolicited calls to me *without* my permission to do so? Why should my evening hours be subjected to the phone ringing off the hook? Telemarketers are a thing of the past, and their methods need to be changed to allow easy access to information about their products - SHOULD I WANT IT. They should be encouraged to provide their information via web sites, and not through "spam" emails (same issue - *I* pay for my internet access) nor junk mail (a waste of materials). While I realize I have strayed outside the bounds of the particular issue at hand, I strongly believe that you - a government agency paid for by me "the little guy" - should listen to the people who are sick and tired of being disturbed at home.
