Comments:I am opposed to allowing telemarketers to utilize prerecorded telephone messages for the following reasons. 1. My experiance with political telemarketing has shown that apparently there is no mechinism to remove a number from a calling list once that number has been reached by the prerecorded message, hence, 7 repeats of the same message in 2 days; a great annoyance! 2. Why should one have to put up with these calls in the first place, I know those businesses are out there, and when I want something they have to offer, I'll contact them! What are the Yellow pages for? 3. Imagine you are preparing food, or working on something dirty or greasy, and you have to drop what you are doing, quickly clean your hands, and run to answer the phone only to have it be one of those @$%*&^%$#@ prerecorded sales pitches??? 4. Does this mean that I will have to discontinue my land based telephone service and change over to a cellular service simply to get rid of these pain in the neck calls? Please do not allow these prerecorded sales calls to those already on the do not call list, and see if there is some way to stop even the political calls from making repeated calls to the same number utilizing the same prerecorded message. I chose not to vote for Governor of my state in the last election simply because of the barrage of repeated prerecorded phone calls coming into my home.
