Comments:Providing a loophole for recorded messages will undoubted flood the very people who opted out of these calls with the do not call list with the calls from a machine. The recent experience with the political recorded messages should serve as a bad example of the type of abuse that can and will happen if the restrictions are not kept in place. Having worked for a telemarketer, I see the advantage of using this loophole to dramatically increase the contacts with people of interest and being able to again ignore the request from the consumer that they not be solicited since a recording will be doing the calls. this should be considered the biggest reversal of privacy laws and a reversal of the will of the people, should the restriction for recorded messages be reworded as to remove the restrictions. I urge you to consider the individual who has requested the valuable service that the Do Not Call list has provided in the elimination of the unwanted telemarketer before any change is made to the Do Not Call list restrictions.
