Comments:Dear Well-Meaning Folks at FTC, My husband and I recently moved to Arizona and endured a three-month period before we were placed on the do-not-call list. During those three months, we received numerous recorded telemarketing calls. They are much more annoying than "live" calls because you do not have the satisfaction of asking that your name be taken off the calling list. The newspaper report of your suggested change in rules said that the recorded calls you would allow had to include a way to opt out of future calls. I assume that message would come at the end of the call. That means that our only option is to listen to the call or hang up and be subjected to future calls. Please do NOT change the regulations to allow any more telemarketing calls than are now permissible. I cannot believe that most consumers want more telephonic contact with companies, and none of us need more recorded messages in our lives.
