Comments:Hi, I'm a physically handicapped person who experiences a great deal of pain in the process of walking to get the phone. It is unacceptable for the FCC or the FTC to allow unwanted and obtrusive calls to be placed to my home under any circumstances. Any business relationship I have with a company does not constitute my permission to harrass and harangue me with undesired offers. And under the circumstances of my physical problems it is doubly unacceptable for you to be even considering this action since it is entirely obvious how incredibly successful the only recently enacted do-not-call list has been to consumers. It is your job to keep commerce and trade checked and balanced. That does not mean cow-towing to what may very well be some of the slimiest marketers known to mankind. It does mean understanding that you as a governmental agency first and foremost work for the people, not the corporations! If you do not heed this advice and I start getting unwanted calls to my now quiet phone you can certainly count on my calls to my elected officials to express my desire for them to enact even stricter legislation which will effectively eliminate any "loopholes" you may perceive that you feel obligated to provide to the pond-scum now roaming the earth.
