Comments:I do NOT want telemarketers to be allowed to send pre-recorded messages. The whole point of the do not call list is to eliminate unwanted phone calls. I consider it a serious intrusion to have my phone ring and to find someone who I don't know and don't want to talk to - a recorded messages is even worse. If I don't call them and ask them about their product, I CERTAINLY don't want them calling me and spouting a recording. This should not even be considered. The preference of the public should far outweigh the few companies who benefit from this type of business. I have no problem with an opt-in program, but the rest of us should just be left alone!!! These companies will use any excuse to say they have a business relationship - a give-away registration, a name from some other vaguely related company, etc., and it's almost impossible to get them to take you off a list or to even figure out how they got you on in the first place. PLEASE don't make this mistake.
