Comments:Dear Sirs, The proposal by Voice Mail Broadcasting Corp to allow prerecorded telemarketing calls to "existing customers" would be a violation of the spirit of the Do Not Call Registry. I am listed on this Registry, and am for a reason: I DO NOT want to be interrupted by telemarketing calls of any kind. To allow these would be an outrage, and would open the public up to internet and voice-mail spam. Being allowed to "opt out" is insufficient. Since when did making a purchase from a company give that company the right to relentlessly harrass the consumer? Companies should allow the consumer to "opt-in", not opt-out. I am strongly against this legislation. Additionally, I would terminate my relationship with any company that would take advantage of this loophole.
