|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:When I learned the Do-Not-Call registry was available I signed up, in the hopes of finally terminating all unwanted, unsolicited and irritating phone calls from people I didn't know, and wasting MY time in the hopes of getting my money. I did this despite the loopholes already present, believing I'd at least finally have relief from the telemarketers and might in the future see those loopholes closed. Now the FTC believes I want yet another loophole created, that I and all the others in the registry clearly didn't mean when we signed up that we wanted NO advertising to our phones. Let me set the record straight: I DO NOT WANT ANY ADVERTISING ON MY PHONE. I think what loopholes currently exist in the application of the registry are a travesty and hope that they'll be plugged in the future. If the FTC opens up another loophole, I intend to work with everyone else on the list who is willing, to have the loophole re-closed, and if possible, punitive action take against the entirety of FTC personnel involved in creating it in the first place, up to and including civil suits against each one of them. When will the FTC, people employed by ME and every other voting tax payer in this country, going to get a clue: YOU WORK FOR US, NOT THE TELEMARKETERS. WE VOTE, NOT BUSINESSES. We signed onto the registry because WE DON'T WANT THE TELEMARKETING. The only ones who want telemarketing calls are the people who didn't register their phone numbers. THAT WAS THE POINT OF THE REGISTRY.
