"Has your evening or weekend been disrupted by a call from a telemarketer? If so, you’re not alone. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been receiving complaints in increasing numbers from consumers throughout the nation about unwanted and uninvited calls to their homes from telemarketers.

Recently, pursuant to its broad authority under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the FCC established a national Do-Not-Call Registry. The registry is nationwide in scope, applies to all telemarketers (with the exception of certain non-profit organizations), and covers both interstate and intrastate telemarketing calls. Commercial telemarketers are not allowed to call you if your number is on the registry. As a result, consumers can, if they choose, reduce the number of unwanted phone calls to their homes."

You can register your phone number for free. Go here for more information:

excellent comic. My company uses a dialer system as well, kinda sux for
us, but as a customer/home owner, I despise it. It's for the better I think.
