Comments:I see the purpose of the Federal 'Do Not Call' list to be an aid to help elminate unwanted calls. I have no desire to see it made ineffective by opeing loophole after loophole. If a company I do business with wishes to contact me, let them send me a letter or have a person call (if it's that important). While the initial goals of the loophole might be worthwhile (I imagine, it's to lower costs for companies to communicate with their customers), I can easily see a future where it's also used to send unwanted advertising to those same customers. If such a thing would occur in the future, doesn't this proposed loophole effectively go agasint the main purpose of the 'Do Not Call' List? I emplore those who are taking this proposal under consideration to keep making the needs and desires of the people/voters the primary consideration and vote AGAINST this proposal.
