Comments:I cannot believe that you are considering making changes to the Do Not Call list. If I understand the proposed amendment correctly, this would allow third-party companies, on behalf of the seller with whom we have or had an established business relationship with, to send a "prerecorded message" to us. This change would not only defeat the purpose of the list, but it would also burden and make it more difficult and time consuming for us consumers to "opt-out" of the list since the messages are "pre-recorded." As it is now, if any undesirable company calls me, I can immediately opt out and ask to be removed from their marketing list and will never have to deal with them again. This is not possible with "pre-recorded" messages. There's a reason why people signed up to be put on the Do Not Call list. It's because they DON'T WANT TO BE CALLED. Get a clue, will ya? And stop wasting the taxpayers' money.
