|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:The purpose of the Do-Not-Call list is to prevent the undesired usage of my personal telephone lines by telemarketers. Pre-recorded messages are extremely undesirable in any form, and I find the proposal to allow such intrusions very offensive. This is the type of proposal that can only be requested by the telemarketers themselves, as the subscribers of the DNC lists would NEVER desire such a nuisiance. The DNC subscribers have been quietly enjoying their evening hours at home, free from the agrivation that the telemarketers previously caused. There is no doubt, we subscribers are much happier without having to screen our calls to avoid the endless barrage of soliitations. I will strongly urge my fellow subscribers to phone the FTC and lodge a complaint for every telemarketing call we recieve,. If the call is pre-recorded, then I will urge my fellow subscribers to call thrice, once to complain about the call itself, and once to complain about the nature of the call, and once to complain about the FTC allowing the change to the rules that allowed such calls. In case there is any doubt, I am against allowing telemarketers to use pre-recored messages in any circumstance. I do not believe the FTC should be in the business of selling, renting, lending, or giving my personal information to telemarketers for any reason other than to ensure that these telemarketers do not call me.
