Comments:The proposal to create an additional onslaught of telemarketing calls by allowing firms to skirt the wishes of some 66 million Americans who have signed the national Do Not Call registery is a direct contradiction. The FCC has already allowed an amount of calls by creating a loophole exemption for companies with "pre-existing business business relationships." (Rather widely inclusive, no? How many purchases does one make in a month? In a year?) It's apparent that this latest attempt by these marketing companies to secure even more leeway to annoy could completely obviate the aforementioned wishes. Rather than allow this, why not rescind/cancel the loophole, and have the FCC come in line with your policies? PLEASE, do not allow these marketers to prevail!
