Comments:DO NOT cave on the National DO NOT CALL rules and regulations. When I submit my phone number to the registry I expect to receive ABSOLUTELY NO phone calls, recorded or live, from ANY BUSINESS ENTITY, even one I supposedly have an established business relationship with. Telemarketers, no matter how much money they dumped into the Bush campaign, should not be allowed to pressure the FTC or FCC to soften the rules. DO NOT CALL means DO NOT CALL. If a company that I have an established business relationship with needs to contact me regarding the business we have together, they can contact me via a live phone call or email. That should be limited to on-going business, not a solicitation of any kind for additional business. If I need a product or service, I will seek out that product or service via the phone book or the internet or advertisements. I don't need someone calling me to tell me I need their products/services. I can think and make decisions on my own without their prompting. thanks for listening, and if I haven't made it clear, I vote NO on the proposed loophole allowing companies to deliver "pre-recorded messages" to American homes, if they are on the DO NOT CALL registry. In fact, why is there a 5 year limit on the registry. Will I change my mind 5 years from now??? Not likely. My number on the registry should be made permanent. How 'bout introducing that loophole!!! Does this agency work for me or for the asian woman with broken english that is trying to sell me a satelite dish I don't want.
