All loopholes should be closed. Political and charitable are fine but any other loopholes only allow telemarketers to scam and irritate the public. Their business model, legal or (usually) otherwise, should not rest on the shoulders of an unwilling and uninformed public. So, please institute: - full disclosure requirement on every call no matter who initiated - higher penalties for violation of the rules - anything else that prevents these pariahs from preying on the public (it's not a 'free market' when full knowledge is withheld)
