Comments:I think that if you are on the Do-Not-Call list, then you should not be called for sales reasons at all. If you purchased a product from a company, then they may call you for recall, maintenance, and safety purposes. But not to sell you anything else. If you take the time to register for the registry, then you are stating that you dont want any more sales calls, period. That includes all sales calls, new and repeat sellers. As it stands, I have had my only phone (cell) registered since the list went into effect, and I still have received several solicitation phone calls. Some from companies I have delt with, some from companies I haven't, all unwanted. A recorded message is no better than a live person. At least with a live person, you can have the illusion of requestiong removal from the list, with a machine, you are just out of luck. And I really don't want my voicemail filled with telemarketing calls, so that real people that I actually want to talk to can't leave a message. DENY this amendment, and save us all some headaches. Or better yet, require that the operator giving the sales pitch give you their home phone number, and address when they call, so that we can return the favor.
