Comments:TWIMC: If a consumer has an established business relationship with a company, there is no need for such a reminder--my word--of that relationship. When occasion arises that the consumer is in need /or/ want of a product, it will be natural for them to consider any companies with which they have that relationship and whether or not that company sells such a product, etc. The established relationship relates to a satisfactory level of same and therefore, whether to shop that business for that product is axiomatic. And, even in the event there may have been some disputes between a given consumer and a company with which he/she has an established business relationship, the fact of that continuing status, I repeat, is a sufficient enough tie, if I may, for that company to be considered for a given purchase. In the final analysis, then, the kind of pre-recorded contact considered is superfluous. The Do Not Call legislation was set in policy to provide a modicum of relief to the citizen as a consumer. It should stay in force, as it is. What are you considering here, flip-flopping. Protect the citizen-as-consumer; that was the raison d'etre for the creation of the FTC. Not to promote for business. I don't like it and I don't want it. How about you, do you want this interruption, unsolicited, in your home? Thank you, William A. Morocco, Sr.
