Comments:Plain english: Nocall means nocall. This is not hard to figure out. It's my phone not theirs. There is a reason for a nocall list.People DO NOT want to be bothered with these calls. Let the FTC protect the people they represent and not the companys that want to call. I want the phone for my use and not a way for someone to sell me something. Why don't these companys that want to call, support a call list. If someone wants them to call they can put themselves on that list. I think my right not to be bothered by these calls, supersedes anyones right to interfere with my personal time. I believe a call list will be much easier to manage and less costly to operate. I don't think that any company would want people to sign up every two years to be put on a call list, so I don't understand why I have to be bothered every two years to opt out. What is the difference if you have a recording trying to sell you something or a person? IT IS THE SAME THING!!!!!! I don't want to be bothered by either. If someone tells you not to swear at them, is it all right if you record it and play it to them??? I don't think so. If I want or need a service I will call and contact whomever I want. If someone trys to sell me something over the phone, I am less likely to buy that product from that person. You must realize that more people are against telemarketers than are for them. This should be a non issue. STICK UP FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE.
