Comments:In regards to the proposed change to the Do-Not-Call program that would allow telemarketers to send pre-recorded messages to our telephones, answering machines and our dinner times; I want to strongly voice my opposition to this proposed change. The implied purpose of this system in the first place was to reduce or eliminate the bothersome calls, messages and disturbances of telemarketers in our lives. To this end, it has been a rousing success. Other than during the recent Presidential Campaign, I have been blissfully undisturbed by telemarketers. I would encourage you to maintain this instead of changing it to allow some supposed small amount. I believe that these companies will exploit (as their business demands them to) any openning to maximize their ability to market themselves to us. I for one do NOT wish to be inundated as in the past with messages on my answering machine. I do not wish to go back to monitoring incoming calls so as to not answer telemarketing calls and I do NOT wish to suffer the irritation of receiving calls that I do not want. Thank you for your attention to my opinions.
