Comments:What part of NO CALL do you not understand? When I signed up for the no call list it was with the specific intent to NOT RECEIVE UNWANTED SPAM CALLS. Your current proposal to allow recorded messages violates the meaning of the no call list. I also believe it opens the door for a class action suit against the FTC as there are now 64 million CONFIRMED telephone numbers on the no call list. It was certainly not my intent when signing up for the no call to have my number distributed as a number which can be called by a mindless computer (which, incidently does not hang up when I do - thereby making my phone line unavailable to me for periods of up to a minute). I hope this madness being pursued by the Voice Mail Broadcasting Corp and being supported by Allen Hile in your office is quickly and soundly put to rest. I PAY for my phone service. I pay for a phone because I wish to have the ability to call others I want, and to receive calls from those I wish to talk to. I do not pay to have my privacy interrupted by nameless telemarketers (who often do not have Caller ID information transmitted when calling) and moreover, not by computer generated messages. Quit giving in to the graft and kickback dollars of the corporations and their lobbists and do your job - protect us, the common citizen, from this intrusive, distasteful, and lothesome practice. Just say NO to opening the no call list to computer generated messages.
