Comments:Why would you even consider doing something that completely contradicts the purpose for which this list was created. Most of the telemarketing calls received by consumers are calls from companies from which we have indirectly purchased products, or whom have purchased our names from other companies. The fact that we buy something from a local store can be seen as "establishing a business relationship," and thus allows them to call us with a pre-recorded message. By implementing this loophole, the entire list has been made completely useless as we will now only be harassed by a computer which we cannot obtain any sort of useful contact information from should we wish to be removed from their call list. Now we are back to square one, since it has been my experience that even when told we no longer wish to be contacted, we still are, relentlessly. When will it end? Will there have to be a new "National Do Not Call Me even If Im on the National Do Not Call List?" Please, give me and all other consumers a break, and let us live peacefully, instead of lining your own pockets with the kickbacks you'll receive.
