Comments:It is particularly disturbing to me to hear that the telemarketing folks have found a way to get around the do not call list. It does not matter to me that the call is from a live person or a recording. What does matter is that the telephone will ring and I will be bothered with some nonesense that some unknown telemarketing firm is using to get me to purchase something that I do not need or want. The premise that because I purchased something from a store/company they should have the right to contact me because I might be interested is rediculous on it's face. If I could find what I wanted without assistance in the first place why should I be subjected to calls at my home. I still receive calls from time to time from charities and of course polls. My standard response is and always will be, I do not donate to anyone or do business with anyone or any firm that chooses to invade my home via telemarketing. You are strongly urged to reject this request for an exemption on behalf of public privacy.Please remember that telemarketing firms will use any thread of a connection to determine that a business relationship exists. Thank You.
