Comments:The "Do not call list" was a GREAT benfit to the American family. Don't take my word for it, look at the amount of persons that signed up. Since it was a success, someone feels the need to change it. WHY? American families (customers) are NOT a business, why treat us the same? As the old saying goes, "Don't fix something that is NOT broke." Was it the consumer that asked for this change, NO. It was businesses looking for a LOOPHOLE and I'm hoping our government thinks more of the American family privacy. Has anyone thought about just adding a flag for this LOOPHOLE? Those consumers that want businesses they deal with to be able to call them can check a box (set a flag) and those consumers that don't want this "feature" can opt out. There are other options that can be taken besides opening up this LOOPHOLE for ALL consumers in the "Do not call list" database. Please do the "RIGHT" thing for the American family (consumer) and do NOT let this LOOPHOLE take effect.
