Comments:I really don't want to get calls. I don't want to get calls from businesses with whom I have a 'prior business relationship'. When I need something from them, I'll be sure to let them know. As such, I don't think that particular loophole should have been allowed in the first place. I am vehemently opposed to expanding it. I'm not sure where the confusion is - I don't want to be called. It's an invasion of my privacy and it wastes my time. I am astounded that the rights of businesses to invade my privacy somehow trumped my privacy rights at any point in time. The telephone was meant to be a convenience, not an annoyance. I hope this is absolutely clear: FEWER CALLS, NOT MORE!
