Comments:I urge you to leave the TSR unchanged. The extremely low costs per contact enabled by the changes you are considering almost ensure abuse by the more unscrupulous organizations in our society and, in time, by most organizations as they attempt to "remain competative." We have already seen what happens with spam e-mail and junk (USPS) mail, (When was the last time you received a junk FedX envelope?), why would you think the average consumer wants more telemarketing calls? I am tired of opting out. I am tired of the steady stream of marketing promotions we receive almost everywhere we go. The companies who I have a "relationship" with can already legally have their live representatives contact me if it's worth the $4 or so per contact that it costs to call me. Don't make it even easier for these organizations to further disrupt my privacy by allowing their automation to abuse me.
