Comments:Clearly the intent of the "do not call" registry in the first place was to give the option to prevent unsolicited phone sales efforts, prerecorded or not. Especially pre recorded in my opinion. My opinion is emphatic that if FCC or FTC rules need to be changed to agree with each other, it should be the FCC rules so that pre recorded messages would not be allowed under any circumstances where a person has properly registered with the "Do Not Call Registry"(i.e. Close the loophole!!!!!!). To consider this change given the popularity of the Do not Call Program is also an irresponsible waste of tax dollars. The issue already has been settled. Finally, the DMA should not be allowed to amend the call abondenment safe harbor restrictions.
