Comments:As I read this original message, my feelings are... If I have requested to be placed on the DO NOT CALL list, because I do not want to be bothered with telemarketers untimely, unwanted, belligerent and forceful telephone solicitation, what makes someone think I want to be bothered having to sort through 5-15 telemarketer voicemail messages. I don't, I don't and again I DO NOT WANT TO RECEIVE THOSE CALLS. Telemarketer companies want to force themselves on the general public. For those who want that type call, the customer can solicit that type caller. It is bad enough receiving junk mail I can (go through if I choose to or) trash it immediately without being bothered. I, personally, have more things to do with my voicemail than have to weed through junk voicemail messages. Added, many voicemail systems will only hold 15-16 messages. Some messages are retained by the person called for their personal needs/reasons.These calls being stored on voice mail added to junk telemarketer calls reduces the voicemail capabilties. Considering as a consumer I must pay for my telephone service, I should be able to dictate what type calls I want messages left for me on my voice mail - and telemarketer calls is not what I want. Please do not allow this new way to intrude on the privacy of people the telemarketing community wants to now use.
