Comments:The Do Not Call List should not be changed to allow pre-recorded messages. Opening the door just a crack to allow pre-recorded messages would eventually lead to a flood of this type of rule bypass. If pre-recorded messages are allowed, then thay should only be allowed under an opt-in plan. Even better, if they are allowed then they should only be allowed under an opt-in plan and the telemarketer should be required to pay the (partial) telephone bill of the receiving party - much as the cost of public television is paid for by advertisers.
