Comments:Changing the do not call registry is a bad idea. There is already an allowance for companies that have done business with individuals. Recorded messages are the worst since you can't be removed from the list until you get to the end of the message and even then the remove from the list doesn't always work which leaves an "excuse" as to why they keep calling. It's almost as bad as email spam. Please do not make any changes to the registry. Until the registry came into effect I would get as many as 20 calls a day and I had to literally stop answering my phone missing 2 important phone calls of family members who became ill and were hospitalized. I beg you, don't allow companies to abuse the population of this country just to make money. If a company wants to advertise they can use other methods that aren't so intrusive such as television, radio, or newspapers. Using the phone in that method is an invasion of my privacy and my home in a way that causes me to drop everything I'm doing to be annoyed with something I don't even want anyway.
