Comments:When I signed up for the "Do Not Call List", I thought computerized calls were included. Just having to answer the phone calls of telemarketers and survey takers is more than a nuisance -- they're a complete waste of time. Just what do we, the public have to do to get this invasion of privacy eliminated ??? At 70+ years of age, there is not a lot we would care to buy from just about anyone. These calls are of no benefit to us. It's really a shame we can't count on any goverment agencies to protect us from whatever. More and more, it appears that these agencies are more into protecting business -- and especially big business. The bigger they are, the more assistance they get. Is this how it's supposed to be ???
