Comments:I am an unemployed telemarketing manager, laid-off as a direct rersult of the national do not call list. I am very much against automated calls. Any sales call is a violation of my privacy, but automated ones are the most intrusive. I can't ask the message to get to the point or never call again. Often one must wait until the end of the message for contact information, write down a phone number, call back, turn down a live sales offer, ask to speak with a manager, and then finally ask to be deleted from future calling campaigns. These calls are far more intrusive than the calls currently being regulated, and due to the low cost, they occur in much greater volume.
