Comments:This proposition is absolutely ridiculous, and completely defeats the purpose of the "Do Not Call" list. It is not a "Limited Call" list, it is not a "Partial Call" list, it is not even a "The Company Can Call You If They Think You Might Really Go For This Magazine Subscription Because It Comes With A Free Spatula That Has Scott Baio's Face On It" list. It is a DO. NOT. CALL. List. PERIOD. Currently, in order to be placed on a company's Do Not Call list, you simply have to inform the person on the other line of this, and all is well. With pre-recorded messages, I have to take time to call the company back, and go through (what will undoubtedly become) numerous loops and runarounds to contact someone who is willing and able to place me on that list. My primary phone number is a cellphone, and the idea that I would have to spend my minutes (that is, my MONEY) to try to get a company to stop calling me is atrocious.
