Comments:I am OPPOSED to opening a loop-hole in the current conditions of the no-call rule. Specifically ... 1. I am OPPOSED to allowing telemarketers to use pre-recorded messages to call enrollees of the no-call list. In my opinion, such pre-recorded messages would be nothing more than voice-mail spam. 2. I am OPPOSED to requiring no-call enrollees to opt-out of telemarketing plans. Implementing such a feature leaves the enrollee with an UNLIMITED number of folks to contact just to avoid being harassed. Where would one even start?? It would make much more sense to require an opt-in feature that requires telemarketers (who KNOW who they've targeted as recipients) to get permission (via snail-mail?) BEFORE ANY telephone contact is attempted by the telemarketer to the enrollee in the no-call list. 3) I am OPPOSED to allowing telemarketers to make any calls of any nature to cell 'phones without the PRIOR APPROVAL of the intended recipient.
