Comments:DO NOT CALL means do not call. It means, I do not want ANY unsolicited marketing calls from anyone or anything. It means, I do not wish to get calls from a company that has a business relationship with me. It means I do not wish to get calls from a company that does NOT have a business relationship with me. It means that you can assume I wish to get NO marketing calls from any organization. I'm pretty sure most citizens on the receiving end of telemarketing campaigns would have no difficulty understanding the meaning of DO NOT CALL. What then makes it so difficult for the FTC to understand the meaning of DO NOT CALL? You certainly do not have to protect my right to receive such marketing campaigns should I wish to receive them - I am quite sure I can add my name to a company's DO CALL list with no difficulty whatsoever. I am sure they will understand the meaning of DO CALL. There is no need, then, to worry about making DO NOT CALL too restrictive. Go for it!
