Comments:No, do not allow telephone answering machine SPAM. During the election, it was altogether to common and I could not wait until it was over. Such messages are a ridiculous infringement and very pesky. Another aspect of the messages is that they can cause the overlooking of actual messages. Because as with email SPAM the number of them is overwhelming, such takes too much time and attention. Additionally, the verbal SPAM that is being considered would overtax messaging equipment and the useful lifetime of it be reduced. People would have to pay to replace equipment overtaxed by idiotic messages! The "do not call list" was a brilliant success. But the pending changes in the code would denigrate FTC's effectiveness, along with the successfulness of the list. Please don't allow the people to be subjected to such nonsense, that would betray the public trust!
