Comments:I am against the petition submitted by the Direct Marketing Association to amend the TSR’s call abandonment safe harbor provision that currently requires use of "technology that ensures abandonment of no more than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, "measured per day per calling campaign" substituting the phrase "measured over a 30-day period.". I have been very pleased with the new ruling and have not been bothered by constant calls from telemarketers! I do not want my answering machine "full" of telemarketing calls which I will have to listen to and then erase.
