Comments:This will allow people who signed up for the do not call list to be specifically targeted by marketers using this method. Basically, you would be allowing a route for those people who specifically do NOT want to be marketed to, to be marketed to more heavily in this sense. It should be obvious that the Do Not Call list should be used to prevent people from being marketed to. For this purpose, the list has become widely popular, both in usage and opinion. It should be common sense that cahnging the list to make it a tool for marketers to call people more frequently, albiet by a less intrusive method, would be viewed by the public as abuse. The people on the list do not want their phones to ring unless the caller is someone they wanted calls from. You should not use the list to cause their phones to ring more often by uninvited marketers. That would greatly decrease the trust the public has gained for this list, and through the list, the government in general.
