Comments:Registering on the Do Not Call list has definitely reduced, but not eliminated the number of calls that interrupt my day... so the provision is working but needs to be enforced better. WHY ON EARTH would you be considering a provision to water it down???? How long do you think that it will take to have every single direct marketing firm out there fully dedicated to exploiting this loophole and getting the number of privacy invading interruptions up to previous levels? Is there anybody proposing ammendments to make the rule STONGER? I don't know the exact law, but I was under the impression that delivery of pre-recorded messages was illegal except in certain specific circumstances. Will not this provision mean that you are giving the DMA the green-light to blanket my phone with pre-recorded messages. Will the delivery of pre-recorded messages be counted in the statistics for call abandonment??? If so, that is their strategy for cooking the numbers... why on earth would a pre-recorded message not be able to be delivered within the 3 second limit? DO NOT DO THIS!!!!!!
