|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:I signed up for the "do not call" list under the premise that it meant "do not call", not "call if you're a pre-recorded message". If it walks like a duck... it's a call I don't want. . I don't want automated call messages coming from my utility providers, my financial partners, or the places I use my bank card. If I did, I'd have not signed-up for this list. Further, I feel that, if someone wants to reach me, and doesn't wish to provide a live person with which to talk, it's a nuisance call anyway. The FTC shouldn't endorse nuisance calls, let alone unsolicited ones. If outbound telemarketing hadn't earned the reputation of being a bad industry, there wouldn't have been a need for this list in the first place. Thank you for considering my comment.
