|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:This modification to the rules is ridiculous and insulting I do not want to receive any telemarketing calls EVER, and I never do business with any organization that uses telemarketing to advertise. Creating a loophole to allow recorded messages to invade my home and my privacy goes against the intent of the Do Not Call Registry. I cannot begin to imagine the amount of junk phone calls I will receive if this amendment passes. As it stands, if I receive a telemarketing call from a copy I have done business with, I can simply tell the caller to add me to their "do not call" list. With pre-recorded messages, the burden of escaping from their calls would fall squarely on my shoulders. The amount of time and energy I would have to use to find the right person to call to opt-out of recorded messages would be staggering. Do not cave in to the Direct Marketing Association's last gasp before it dies. Leave people who do not want telemarketing calls alone.
