Comments:Please DO NOT allow telemarketing companies to waste our time with additional junk calls - from recordings or humans! It is intrusive to be interrupted by sales calls, and they seldom (if ever) provide enough information to make an informed decision about the product or service offered. I find recorded sales messages even more offensive than human calls - if it's important enough for me to answer the phone, it should at least be important enough for them to pay for a human at the other end. Personally, I accept nothing offered by telemarketers - I do not support the practice, and if enough people refused to listen, perhaps they would stop doing it. I'd prefer to see telemarketing abolished entirely!
