Ebony Sunshine Jerido, 23, who is studying dramatic writing at New York University, says that telemarketers symbolize the loss of privacy in her life, and she said she wonders whether they are gathering information about her and how they might be using it. She is so concerned about privacy that she will not sign up for do-not-call lists because she does not want the government to have her number. She plans instead to get caller ID and call blocking, services that give her more control over the calls she answers.
If this woman is so paranoid, it's pretty stupid to tell all this stuff to the press. I'm just saying.
