Comments:I do not support allowing companies to contact me via pre-recorded messages even though I have my number on the National Do Not Call list. When I want to buy a product, I will go looking for it - at a local store, in a catalog, on the internet. The time required for me to contact each company I have a business relationship with is expensive. I have college homework to finish, a family to spend time with, personal hobbies to enjoy, and a career to maintain. My work day is hectic enough. I do not want the peace and quiet of my home distrubed by a ringing phone by companies pushing useless products - the only kind of products sold over the phone and by prerecorded messages. I do not have time to tell every company on the planet that I am not interested in their products. No to pre-recorded messages. No to the DMA's petition to have the call abandonment restrictions loosened.
