Comments:The Do-Not-Call list has been very successful in reducing annoying calls. This proposed change seems like a blatant attempt to water down the law and should not be allowed. Sending unsolicited prerecorded messages to telephones of private citizens is an abuse of the telephone network and should not be allowed. At most, citizens should be given the option to 'opt in' to receive such messages by responding to written mail, but should never be forced to undergo the harrassment of unsolicited commercial calls.
