|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:Computer controlled, aka, prerecorded solicitation is NOT a desireable feature to "release" upon us, the targeted consumer. It is paramount to the non ceasing intrusions as experienced during the national election campaigning. It is NOT what I want to occur again on my telephone system. Also, It is now getting bad enough that advertisements are now being forced upon us, as a web user, via the semi-embedded allowance as provided by Microsoft and their Internet Explorer software program. The removal is not easy and the existance originally should not have been approved.. NO to "bending over" to the telemarking lobbyists. Although you, the FTC, " does not believe the change would have any dramatic results" it would release the telemarketers to again invade our privacy. At best, if you MUST compromise our privacy then set it up so that we, the consumer, can "opt-in" rather than having to opt-out. (Great idea whoever came up with that one).
