#1 Those are automatic dialing machines that dial calls based on statistical algorithms for call centers. For example, maybe it determines that an operator in the call center comes free every 14 seconds and only one half of calls are answered so it needs to dial 2 calls every 14 seconds to keep operators busy talking and not filing their nails. Normally when you answer, your call would be switched to an available operator. In this cased, the system must have "over-dialed" and there was no operator available so the system hung up on you when you answered.

#2 The legal work-around for monitoring is pretty simple. Just have someone in an overseas location [you name the country] dial the target up from time to time. Bingo!

#4 Come to think of it.. a good reason to outlaw telemarketing is that it's a perfect cover for a terror or criminal coordinator.
