Comments:Dear sir(s), Please do not allow the DMA to undermine the Do Not Call Registry, which was established to curtail annoying telemarketer calls, whether they be live or pre-recorded. Millions of Americans signed up for this registry, which clearly indicates that they are fed up with telemarketers and their tactics, including the use of automated dialing equipment (which should be illegal if not already), which are supported by the DMA. The DMA certainly does NOT have the public's interest in mind, but instead will be trying every trick in the book, like this recent one, to undermine any rule which restricts their unbridled greed. You should vehemently deny their request, as well as any future requests (you know they'll try again) to reduce the scope of the Do Not Call Registry Thank you.
