Comments:Websters lists a loophole as "an ambiguity or omission in the text through which the intent of a statute, contract, or obligation may be evaded". So why this would be allowed if the intent of the law was to reduce at home telemarketing calls? If this is allowed, American’s can look forward to a nightly barrage of pre-recorded calls from a machine. We see television commercials that make fun of talking to a recorded machine and I for one do not need anymore of this. After some time on the list, calls at my home have almost stopped and it is such a pleasure knowing it must be family calling I want to avoid and not the telemarketers. PLEASE close this loophole!
