Comments:Please do not allow telemarketers to begin using automated messages to contact my home. My home is my safe haven and I do not wish to be disturbed there by any kind of telemarketing or solicitation whatsoever, yet even with the current do-not-call registry I am not even afforded that protection. If automated messages are allowed it will become even more difficult for me to request to be removed from the calling lists (I have been hung up on multiple times and had my precious time wasted to the point that I have hung up without successfully being removed from the calling list). Companies should not have the right to invade the privacy of my home in order to sell their wares and it is absurd for a consumer protection agency to get involved in making it more affordable for them to do so (if they want the opportunity they should have to pay for it, giving them incentive to prioritize contact versus mass distribution).
