Comments:Common sense says that when a person signs onto the Do Not Call Registry it means exactly that...do not call. I am opposed to being contacted not only by private industry but also politicians and charitable organizations. The FTC should serve the public welfare and trust to stop all unsolicited calls which is an invasion of privacy. If I buy a cup of coffee from a local store, because I have done business with it, does that entitle the store to telephome me by person or machine? Nonsense! All telephone calls of this nature must not be allowed at all and the method used, such as a telemarketer or machine directly to me or my answering machine, is irrelevant. Such telephone calls are similar to spam on computers. Hopefully, the FTC will do what is right and serve the interests of the American people and their sacred right to privacy in their own homes by ending ALL such calls.
