Comments:I am sick and tired of everybody having rights except for me - the consumer. I don't want phone calls at my home from anybody except my family and friends. Telemarketers are a royal pain in the posterior. They are rude, nasty once you tell them no, and I have one that calls me EVERYDAY and hangs up if I answer. Why can their identifying name and number be blocked? Why isn't it mandatory they show their identity so we can decide if we want to talk to them or not? It's time the consumer had rights. Being on the do not call list doesn't even solve their calling because of their being able to block their number - so they just call and call and call and never identify themselves. Think of the consumer for once!!!!!
