Comments:I am absolutely AGAINST any additional loopholes in the "Do Not Call" law. There are already too many loopholes in the law (e.g. politicians, "charities", etc.). I pay for my telephone service at ever higher rates so that I will have the capability of using it for MY benefit, and NOT for the benefit of someone else, especially not for commercial purposes. Considering that recorded messages are in themselves illegal under a different law, it is absolutely foolish to change not only this law, but the other one as well and allow this type of intrusion. If some company I have done business with needs to speak with me regarding a problem with our transaction or my account, then I can speak with a human. I certainly do NOT have the time nor inclination to listen to some recorded sales pitch. That was the main reason I signed up for the "Do Not Call List" in the first place.
