Comments:1. Pls revise the two quotes below into ENGLISH so people know what you're talking about. The second one makes no sense and conveys no information. 2. DO NOT allow telemarketers to disturb my home and clog my answering machine with recorded garbage. We get too many of these calls already and barely survived the politicians over the past several months. Telemarketer ID and the first part of every message is lost since their computer does not wait for the beep before recording. This leaves the consumer/voter/victim no way to contact the harasser to stop the calls. 3. Pls implement a rule that politicians cannot randomly call people who don't want to hear from them. The vendors and politicians I support have my contact information because I chose to give it to them. Unsolicited calls simply alienate and irritate, thereby guaranteeing no purchases and no votes. You've seen the popularity of the Do Not Call registry - we're trying to tell you we DO NOT want telemarketing calls. We pay for phone service and internet access for OUR convenience, not for advertising. "... to create an additional call abandonment safe harbor to allow telemarketing calls that deliver a prerecorded message to consumers with whom the seller on whose behalf the calls are made has an established business relationship." '... to amend the TSR’s call abandonment safe harbor provision that currently requires use of "technology that ensures abandonment of no more than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, "measured per day per calling campaign" substituting the phrase "measured over a 30-day period."'
