Comments:I am NOT in favor of any additional changes to the Do-Not-Call list, especially when it allows additional calls to be placed to my residence. If a company with an established business relationship wants to contact me, they call surely call me like I would them: person to person. The types of calls this new loophole would allow is likely automated advertisements for new programs, products and services. If I want a new program, product or service, I will ask for it. The other serious problem with this is that I, after being bothered at home, cannot instantly advise the caller to never call again with unsolicited offers. With a human caller, I can get this taken care of immediately. With a recording, I will have no similar way to effect this change. The new propoed rule change does nothing for me, and I guarantee that any company that takes advantage of it will never get my business again. Leave the Do-Not-Call program alone. It is one of the few unqualified triumphs of our federal government.
