Comments:PLEASE!! Do not allow pre-recorded messages; no matter where they originate.. I do not want any marketer, whether someone with whom I do business or whomever, allowed to bother me with unsolicited telephone calls.. There are severall companies right now that are using pre-recorded messages and even live calls, with the 'out' that they are only surveying prospective customers to find if there is any service they would like to see them incorporate.. It is really an invasion of privacy and they maintain they are allowed, under the new law, to conduct surveys.. We are getting three or four of these asinine calls a week.. I hope you won't bend to the pressure of those who want to circumvent the law and be allowed to send pre-recorded messages.. Just the comment they would like to increase their daily calls to 3 million should certainly warrant your denial.. I think the FTC has done a reasonably good job trying to control SPAM and this certainly falls in that category... It makes no sense to require an opt-out process, particularly when we have already opted-out when we registered on the No-call list.. That should be sufficient.. It is an invasion of privacy to allow unwanted, unsolicited and annoying telephone calls from marketers..
