Comments:I understand there is a plan afoot to open the Do Not Call list to recorded messages. Why exactly did you create the list if you intended do this, or was this part of the end game from the start. Con a bunch of people into giving you their valid numbers so that you could then turn around and change the rules and sell the list to the marketers. Really should have called it somthing less misleading though. Do Not Call leads one to believe that thats what it is, not just a government run opt in marketing scam. Bad enough that you trashed its credibility right off the bat by allowing the most obnoxious and persistent telmarketers, panhandlers and politicians. That should have set off alarms right away.(actually it did in my case. I assumed this is where it was ultimatly going frome page 1). If a private company did this, it would be called bait and switch and is against the law as I understand it. Give me a valid reason government should be exempted from laws against using those tactics?
