Comments:Of all the possible forms of telemarketing, pre-recorded and computer-generated calls are the worse. They embody the very core of all that is dispised about telemarketing, and are uniformly hated by every citizen that is not deriving direct revenue from the telemarketing itself. Pre-recorded and computer-generated telemarketing offers no mechanism for the harrassed recipient to express his displeasure at such a means of communication, to lodge a complaint about potential inapproriate or objectionable offers, or to opt-out of future calls. It is my sincere and strong opinion as a US citizen and active, registered voter that the current administration including the FTC should NOT weaken the protection offerred by the Do Not Call Act, particular in regards to pre-recorded or computer-generate messages. As far as I'm concerned, this is one of the very few pieces of Federal legislature that have made any improvement in my life, and I do not want to see it get chipped away.
