Comments:This is ridiculous. If I opt onto a list named Do Not Call then I do NOT want telemarketer calls, prerecorded or otherwise. I'm not happy about the so-called safe harbors that are already in place, I certainly do not want more of them. If I have a previous business relationship I will initiate contact if I so choose. I would only expect contact from businesses in the case of a problem with my transactions. Add to that my feeling that prerecorded messages are the most annoying telemarketing calls of all. Consumers have shown themselves to be overwhelmingly in favor of the do not call program as it stands. Many, like myself, are sad it doesn't go farther. Why would the FTC consider weakening the system more? Please don't let the Do Not Call list become another hollow program.
