Comments:I do not argue that tele markerters have the right to solicit business. I do however argue their method and timinig of their solicitation practices. Prior to my "Do Not Call" subscription, I was receiving approximatley 4 to 5 calls per evening during the dinner hour. Our family cherishes it's privacy during the dinnner hour as it is about the only time that we have a chance to be together and have the opportunity to seek each others support if needed. The "ringing" phone (if we do not answer) distrubs the continuity of what maybe a very important topic, story, or good old fashioned family exchange of humor! We don't need automated systems relentlessly pursuing our business despite our previous relationship. The federal government has provided us a valuable service from this assualt by telemarketers, its fixed so please leave it that way.
