Comments:I object to the proposed rule change which would erode my right not to be contacted by telephone by telemarketing organizations. To me it is no difference whether a person is on the telemarketing call or a recorded message. I do not wish to be called with recorded messages even by organizations with which I may already have a banking, credit, or marketing relationship. The proposed Opt-Out procedure is not a solution. It requires me on a call by call basis to initiate the exclusion procedure. If a new procedure is needed it should be identical to the Do Not Call Register which would allow me to Opt-Out of all recorded messaging with one action. The Opt-In procedure is an acceptable one, only if organizations are not allowed to subvert the process by burying in the fine print of credit and other contracts language which automatically places one in the Opt-In status.
