Comments:I have little to no problem with phone solicitations when the call is dialed personally by an individual. I DO NOT wish to receive mechanically dialed or phone message calls. If the company thinks enough of my time to have an individaul call me, I am willing to consider dealing with them. If they auto dial and then pick up after I answer and identify myself or have a machine dial me and leave a message, I do not do business with them. Auto-Dial and/or voice message calls are junk calls that disguise themselves as something that requires urgent personal attention (my answering the phone immediately). I prefer junk solicitations coming via junk mail or junk e-mail. I can deal with them at my convenience.
