Comments:The Do Not Call list is 180 degrees from what is the correct method of incoming call control. It should be "you may call if the phone owner gives permission." An Opt-In list is the only control that the government has any right to manage. You are not paying for the phone service and therefor do not have any rights in the matter of determining or extending the privilege of making a telemarketing call to my numbers. However, as I cannot change the law then I oppose any change that opens our phone to even more calls. If this change is made, my defense will be; NO business will be given my number. If somehow they do acquire it and call me then I will sever our relationship as soon as practical. If there is no way to avoid giving up my number then the business will be required to sign an agreement not to make telemarketing call of any type. Failing any of those defensive actions then the number they get will be the line to my computer modem. There is no phone on this line. As for a change from three days to 30 days. NO!!
