|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:Dear Sirs: PLEASE DO NOT lessen my privacy control by weakening the rules placed on telemarketers. Even with caller ID, I am PLAGUED by calls from telemarketers with "Private Number" listings. There is nothing worse than having the privacy of my home invaded, invariably as I sit down to dinner, by computer-generated calls followed by a high-pressure sales pitch for a product or service in which I have no interest. This attempt by the DMA is simply another smoke screen to lessen already-sufficient rules. I have faith that the Commision will deny this loophole and continue to attempt to protect the sanctity of our homes. Thanks!
