Comments:To: The Chairman, FTC An unwanted and unrequested prerecorded message to a private telephone line which number has been placed upon the "Do Not Call" List is no different from a similar call made by a "live" employee of a telemarketing firm or organization. Calling using a recorded massage is still an invasion of privacy and was most likely not the intent of those who drafted the Legislation banning and penalizing telemarketers who chose to ignore requests made on the "Do Not Call" List. Furthermore, I strongly object to the phrase "measured per day per calling campaign" being substituted by any other more lenient or less stringent phrase. The Chairman of the FCC is reminded about the popularity of the "Do Not Call" List since its inception and is strongly recommended to follow the will of The People and not to organizations that have a business interest in changing the scope of the rules and the law. Yours faithfully, Matthew Kaser, D.Phil.
