Comments:I think that the idea of opening up the do-not-call list for pre-recorded messages is absurd. The idea of trying to enforce the idea of an 'established business relationship' is laughable. The do-not-call list was created specifically to limit an industry that had gotten out of control and was abusing the public. Now, it is proposed to open it up to the worse offenders? Pre-recorded messages offer the consumer no way of providing feedback to the vendor to get their name and number removed from their calling lists. The wording that is presented on this form makes it appears as though consumers are being protected, but the language is so weak as to invite abuse wholeheartedly. Please, don't pass this. Government is designed to protect and serve the public, not allow other, larger, entities to abuse them for their own profit.
