|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:The Federal Trade Comission has not gone far enough in protecting the citizens of this country from unwanted intrusions into our private lives. I strongly oppose this "additional call abandonment safe harbor to allow telemarketing calls that deliver a prerecorded message to consumers with whom the seller on whose behalf the calls are made has an established business relationship." I should not have to pay taxes to support a government entity to allow marketing scum to further enjoy the priviledge of intruding into my private life at will. A means already exists for them to direct their advertising to my house, the US mail. I suggest that the Federal Trade Commission get its head out of its nether parts and serve the citizens of this country by declaring all telemarketing illegal in every form. Until then, do not count on anything but determined, persistent and effective resistance from myself and the majority of citizens of this nation who feel exactly as I do. If the Federal Trade Commission wishes to make my private phone line available at will to telemarketing scum, then I suggest that the management of the Federal Trade Commission first place their personal home phone numbers on the web for all to see and call.
