Comments:it is obscene that you would even consider allowing automated pre-recorded phone spam to be made to my private phone. the "pre-existing business relationship" rule has already been exploited so far beyond it's intent that it is rediculous. it is a bad rule anyway. if I have registered to not be called, I want to not be called. anybody who calls my phone, including politicians, charities and any business that I do not have a legitimate and ongoing business relationship with (such as my bank, but not my bank's business partner who sells widgets) is violating my privacy. as to the "free speech" reasoning behind allowing political marketers to call me, their right to free speech ends at my front door, and last I checked, my phone was beyond that barrier.
