Comments:Do not allow pre-recorded messages to existing customers. This is why we signed the do-not-call list. These pre-recorded messages fill up answering machines and keep important calls out. For example, my credit card companies call me to sell credit card insurance. I do not want their lengthy pre-recorded message, even though I am an existing customer. Let them use the postal service. You will make a laughing stock of the do-not-call list if you weaken it in this way. Also, you will ruin the phone companies, because we will consider dropping our land line if we get any more nuisance calls after signing up for do-not-call in good faith. Many people already have done just that--dropped land lines because of the nuisance factor. Cell phones offer freedom from intrusion by the countless telemarketers out there.
