Comments:I am on the "No-Call" list because I do not want to be woken up in the morning (I work a late shift). Recorded messages are even worse than talking to people, because I have no opportunity to tell them how I feel about being woken up, when the probability of my actually buying anything from someone who calls me on the phone is in any case vanishingly small, as evinced by the fact that I bothered to get my name on the "No-Call" list in the first place. If this rule change goes into effect and I start getting as many calls as I got just before the election (altogether another sore spot), I will simply have to turn off all of the land-line phones (I use the line for DSL also) and get my family to stick to the cellular one to call me, until you guys decide that my peace should be interrupted there also, in which case I will have to stop using a phone altogether. Thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion on this, even though I know it will probably be disregarded, as I am not a large corporation or business organization with deep pockets.
