Comments:I think it's rediculous that the FTC is considering opening a loophole for recorded messages to be exempted from the "Do Not Call" list. The reason I opted for the "Do Not Call" registry is because I don't want a barrage of unwanted calls from people trying to sell me things! The last thing I want is to be bombarded by recorded messages! And have you ever tried to "opt out" of these messages? It doesn't work! As an example, the repeated soliciting I get on my fax machine, (even though my fax number is registered on "DNC") will never stop no matter how many times I call the number asking for my fax number to be removed. My theory is that it just confirms the fax number so that the offending company merely sells my number to 2-3 other people, who in turn do the same. Please don't alter the rules. It's been fairly peaceful in my home since DNC went into effect... even with all these faxes.
