B4 should be deemed “Transactional or Relationship” messages because these types of messages are supposed to be the same as one friend talking to another. If a friend of yours recommends a certain product or service to you, you have the option to agree or disagree, make a purchase or disreguard the information entirely. Any person in The United States of America that is above the age of a child already has this option and there should be no further regulations in this reguard. C.Modifying the 10-business-day time period for processing opt-out requests. There should be a time limit of only one day for this. Most legitimate marketers use list management software that handles this request automatically and instantly. These types of software programs are relatively inexpensive and some can even be aquired for free. Software programs, like computers, and unlike humans, do exactly what they are told to do and exactly when they are told to do it. The only time a delay would be needed is if other messages had already been sent by the sender and not received yet. There is not a delay of more than 1 day to receive messages that have been sent from any server on the internet from anywhere in the world to my knowledge.
