Comments:I am very much disheartened to find the national Do Not Call Registry is considering opening a loophole in the year-old program to allow companies to once again deliver pre-recorded message telemarketing to private American homes. The Do Not Call Registry has been a relief and a victory by Americans to maintain the privacy of their homes. I am very much opposed to allowing Voice Mail Broadcasting or any other company to send unsolicited messages to consumers. If Voice Maill Broadcasting calls are permitted, it should only be under an OPT-IN plan where the company is required to get permission from customers BEFORE sending any messages. Under no circumstances should customers have to contend with the nuisance of an OPT-OUT system to protect their privacy.
