Comments:This move will destroy the appeal of the "Do Not Call List". I signed onto it so that I would not receive telephone solicitations. The was no qualification at all of what a telephone solicitation was and there is none now. My phone number is a tool that I PAY to use to communicate with PEOPLE in a location other than that from which I am calling or answering. If I wish to extend or alter any business relationship or arrangement that I have with any company or entity, I will call them. I do not want them to call me, that is part of the reason that I pay my bills in a timely manner. Commercial voice mail is not an acceptable compromise. The increased storage capacity my provider will need to handle the recordings will increase and they WILL pass that cost along to me. Why did they even bother in the first place? Was it to compile a list of people who definitely do not want to be bothered by telephone solicitors so that you would know ahead of time to tailor the pitch for people who are willing to go to the effort of making it publicly known that they resent being bothered? It will look that way if you do this. Disgusting.
