Comments:What is this I hear about open up the "DO NOT CALL" list to companies with "established business relatonship"? There is a bad enough loophole of companies exploiting the non profit clause to get you on the phone and then sales pitch other items. There is a problem called "parent companies" and partial ownerships. This clause also gives them a better chance in court, making them a little more willing to ignore the list entirely. Just because I do business once with a company does not give them the right to continually harass me afterward. With VoIP it is going to get cheaper for these companies to harass people, now would not be a good time to poke holes in the only thing keeping me sane. I work nights and I would like to have phone service without needing to leave the ringer off. Besides, the very fact that I am on the DO NOT CALL list means I am not interested. This is not cable broadcast TV or radio, I should be entitled to own a telephone without it being used as a median for advertising. Nice to see my tax money going to good use.
