Comments:We consider recorded telemarketing calls to be the MOST disruptive and potentially dangerous form of telemarketing calls. This applies to entities with whom I have an established business relationship. The ONLY exception that should be allowed would be for emergency situations where life or substantial property are in immediate danger. To the extent that it is in the power of the FTC, the FTC should consider banning recorded telemarketing calls for those on the Do Not Call list from all sources including political and charitable callers. An alternative that FTC may want to consider is a Do Not Call list that indicates that the caller does not want ANY recorded calls except for life/property emergencies (including those from charitable and political calllers) -- this would clearly establish the preference that I am sure is held by a vast majority of homes and small businesses.
