Comments:My understanding of the "Trade Regulation Rule on Telemarketing Sales" leds me to believe that the "no call list" would be weakened by allowing groups to send pre-recorded messages. This is not acceptable. Users (anyone with a phone) should be allowed to rely on a single list to opt out of ALL unwanted calls. To provide a mechanism for "some" calls seems to be a slippery slope to allowing almost any call. The problem is thus two fold. First, users lose their ability to opt out of calls. Second, companies face additional burdens attempting to follow more complicated rules. It is my opinion that the "no call list" should remain what its name implies, a list of users who do not want to receive ANY unsolicited calls.
