Comments:I am tired of having to opt out to avoid nuisance phone calls. I don't buy anything over the phone and/or donate money because of phone calls. I am already signed up with the Do Not Call Registry. If I don't want a live person soliciting me, why in the heck do I want a prerecorded message invading my phone line including my cell phone. I am absolutely against any loopholes to the Do Not Call Registry. Why are you even thinking about this? Because I buy something from a company this does not give them the right to constantly solicit me for other products they may sell. If I buy a dishwasher, and they also sell auto insurance, I do not want to be on their customer list for auto insurance. The rule should be if you buy a product, there should be a box to check if you want to be contacted or solicited, not that the customer always has to opt out. When I buy a product, I don't consider myself their lifelong bosom buddy customer who can't wait to be solicited to buy additional products. I am capable of making my own decisions about buying products.
