Comments:I am in the Do Not Call Registry. I'm getting calls from companies that have hounded me in the past, but I have not ever done business with them. I'm also getting a lot of other telemarketing calls from companies I've never heard of. Dish TV has called several times, despite my telling them I'm on the Do Not Call list. I have talked to other people who are also being hounded by telemarkers again, even though they are also on the Do Not Call list. These callers are blocking caller ID, so we don't know where the calls are coming from. The situation is getting totally out of hand, again. Please don't amend any rules that give telemarketers more rights to hound us. If we want to talk to a company, we can call them, they don't need to call us at inconvenient times. I don't do business over the phone, unless I place the call myself, or request that a company contacts me, for a specific reason.
