|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:The existing rules regarding the Do Not Call List, this list seemingly having obtained the desired results, elimination of, or at least a significant reduction in telemarketing calls, SHOULD NOT BE CHANGED IN ANYWAY, EXCEPT POSSIBLY TO STIFFEN THEM. Additionally, respecting the joke that is the Can Spam Act of 2003, I'm still INUNDATED with unwanted, unsolicited SPAM. The existing law is TOOTHLESS, and it's provisions are totally ignored by SPAMMERS. For instance, clicking on the "unsubscribe" link, where one can be found, does not obtain desired ends, cessation of the spam. Also, the copying and pasting of these messages, so that they can be brought to the attention of authorities, seems to be blocked. The word of these operators, promises to comply with the law, are obviously worthless. Absolutely no margin of relief from such restraints the law might impose on them is, in any way at all warranted, and none should be granted.
