Comments:Dear FTC Staff: RE: Proposed rule I have been involved in a Quixtar affilitated business as an independent entrepeneur for many years. I am impressed that my colleagues and myself go to lengths to provide substantial information to prospective business partners and indeed, many of those very individuals insist on such. The idea of requiring a seven day delay would provide no benefit for the candidate, as each takes a different time to make their own decision. This requirement would put a senseless external boundary limiting the posibilities of a natural pace of growth in business. The requirement for references is irrelevant in my business and the businesses of thousands of my peers, as we have built this into all of our operations as a natural component. The requirement for a "litigation list" is an onerous and unreasonable requirement, likely not possible to be met. The requirement to provide evidence of income is intrusive on a personal level and inconsistent with any other occupation with which I am familiar, and irresponsible. Thank you for your attention to this.
