Comments:America is thankful for the Do Not Call list. I signed up the day it went online, and it has been wonderful. It's turned phones back into devices of communication instead of avenues for marketers. PLEASE don't adjust the rules. Marketers will abuse the new guidelines and we'll be back in the same mess as before. Marketers have plenty of opportunities to reach us over TV, radio, freeway billboards, and even junkmail solicitations (something that I'd also like to see eliminated). They do not need to bother us on our phones -- things WE pay monthly bills for. (This isn't the same as a TV commercial, which ironically we are also paying for, because we can get up and leave during a commercial without feeling rude.) Please leave the DNC alone -- it's perfect.
