Comments:Simply put: An unsolicited call by a recorded message is as much an unsolicited call as a call from a computer or a person. Extremely few unsolicited calls are ever welcome. If companies are allowed to partner with anyone who are then allowed to send unsolicited recorded messages, there will quickly be as many or more unsolicited calls as there was before. A loophole such as this will totally negate any positive effect of the National Do-Not-Call list. As an aside, one would wonder why advertizing companies are so against a detailed and precise way to send an ad by email instead. If the advertizing company would agree to mark email advertizements as such in some exact computer identifiable way, they could get their ads to the people who want to see the ads, and not bother the people who don't want to see the ads. Isn't that what the ad companies say they want to do? Personally, I would love to pass through all ads about travel trailers, because thay is what I am interested in right now. On the other hand, I have no interest in lawn vacuums because I do not have a lawn, and I'm not going to buy a lawn vacuum no matter how many ads I see for one.
