Comments:I believe that "TSR Prerecorded Call Prohibition and Call Abandonment Standard Modification, Project No. R411001.” as it is drafted now is too vague and yet too restrictive. The intent is good to eliminate phone spammers, but there are automated outbound calls that I would like to recieve that may not be allowed because of the wording in this ruling. And I think that requiring signatures is not realistic and too burdonsome on the consumer and businesses. In this day and age an email or web type of approval is sufficient. As a consumer, I like getting reminders to refill my prescriptions, or updates on new services available from my cable company. What I don't like is getting spam from companies I've never heard of or having my number sold to some directory. You should focus on that problem, instead of making it more difficult or even impossible for me to continue to enjoy valuable phone services. Thank you for considering my comments on this important issue.
