I know it’s me against the world on this issue, but I really think robo-calls are a valuable source of political information. Not that I get my information from them, personally! It’s just that I would hate to see them disappear. What’s next? No mailing brochures to people? No knocking on doors reminding them to vote? No emailing them or campaigning in virtual realms like Second Life? (Notice my new positive attitude towards Second Life.)
It’s like advertising — everyone complains about how annoying it is, without considering that the flow of information would be constrained without it.
