Comments:You're kidding, right? This rule amounts to a loophole that destroys the integrity of the Do-Not-Call list and essentially nullifies the protections afforded by the most popular government institution in recent history. If people don't want to be called, they don't want to be called. Period. Having previously sold someone a trinket on Ebay, or knowing someone else who sold a trinket on Ebay does not change the fact that people do not want to be harrassed at home. If a commercial comes on television, I have the right not to be hassled by not watching television. It is wholly impractical and even unsafe for me to turn off my telephone. This loophole would violate my right not to be hassled by people I don't want to hear from.
