Comments:Re: Trade Regulation Rule on Telemarketing Sales, Docket Id: RIN 3084-0098. Allowing prerecorded telemarketing messages is an awful idea, under any circumstances! 1) Offering to target such messages based on an established business relationship mitigates, but does not justify or excuse, a fundamentally undesirable practice. 2) The enthusiastic response to the federal Do-Not-Call List constitutes a mandate, to which the FTC should not make an exception. This proposal invites the FTC to violate the expressed will of the people.
