Comments:Telemarketers and spammers invade private homes without the receiving person's permission. It makes no difference if the private home inhabitants have a business relationship with the telemarketers company or not. If they want to advertise, they should mail it to keep the receiving person from being disturbed by unnecessary phone calls that can include hidden expenses when retreiving messages from ones cell phone. Prerecorded messages that are left on a home phone is an unsolicited advertisement that will cost individuals time and money since when checking messages from a cell phone, my costs will go up. Please stop telemarketers from advertising with prerecorded messages. I'm happy to receive "junk mail." It doesn't cost the person receiving "junk mail" any indirect costs to open or discard.
