Gentlemen, I would like to
comment on the proposed change in the DO NOT CALL Law. Isn't DO NOT CALL
specific enough? Just what is it you don't understand that you would permint
recorded messages to go through? I think I speak for most people in saying we
DON'T want messages coming on our phones that were not invited and that includes
recorded messages. The idea that because we may do business with a company that
that gives them the right to invade our privacy is just rediculous and just
another form of SPAM. If my bank, credit company, insurance company, etc. wants
to contact me, they can send me a letter. And just to make these recorded phone
calls worse, you can't even hang-up on them, they play to the end. If you
hang-up and then pick up the receiver again, the recording is still playing. If
you only have a cell phone and you pay for incoming calls, guess who pays, ME.
Something is wrong here and changing this law works against us. We DON'T want
these calls! They even came from both political parties before the elections.
The idea that they will only come from approved people is just rediculous. Don't
give in to lobbying groups, make the DO NOT CALL law stronger not weaker.
Doesn't anyone in
