Comments:The Do Not Call Registry is a huge protection for the average person like me. Since I registered on the site, I have only be bothered by calls from my home telephone and cell phone companies trying to selling me things and by one organization that I made a donation to last year. Prior to the Do Not Call List, I received several calls every day. Asking to be removed from a particular company's list is not always possible, because the telemarketer often hangs up too quickly. This loop hole would ERASE the protection I now receive. Every grocery, credit card, phone, and retail company could call me and harass me at home. These days, it is impossible to know what giant organizations have ownership in a particular store or smaller company. If the grocery store is owned by a company that also owns a credit card company, will you let them take my info from the grocery and use it to call me with credit card offers? Please do not make this loop hole into law.
