Comments:I am opposed to allowing any type of telemarketing loophole through the Do-Not-Call registry. The reason I signed up on that list was to avoid any type of telemarketing interruption to my daily life. I work anywhere from 9-12 hours a day, and I don't want to spend my free time having to pick up and hang up the phone for these messages. Even after the Do-Not-Call registry was established, my wife and I still screen our phone calls because of the number of people who are still allowed to call. I must say that the number of telemarketing calls has greatly reduced thanks to the Do-Not-Call registry, but if anything I think the FTC time is better spent trying to STOP more phone calls from reaching consumers. Thank you for taking the time to read my opinion on this matter. Although I realize I provide no strong evidence to back my case, I hope that my personal opinions have some sway in your decision.
