Comments:Absolutely not! I signed up for the do-not-call list specifically because it _is_ a do-not-call list. What part of that do you not understand??? Changing the use of the list after the public has signed up for it is an abuse and is amoral. Perhaps the reason that these "telemarketing" businesses have seen such a dramatic drop in call acceptance after the list went into effect is because _people do not want to be bothered by them at all_??? These companies twist the definition of "existing business relationship" so badly that I still get call from companies that I have never heard of, but because my name was sold on a list they claim they have a prior relationship with me. If the FTC does this, it is only another example of them caving into existing business interests instead of protecting the public they are supposed to serve. In that case, I will abandon my landline entirely and go purely with VoIP that I _can_ control.
