Comments:Please do not ALLOW pre-recorded messages to be sent to the 63 million people who have submitted their names to the “National Do NOT Call List”. The “Do Not Call List” was intended to fight unsolicited telemarketing calls, but that very list is at risk of being handed over to the very people we don’t want calling us. Since the inception of the “Do Not Call List”, telemarketers were not allowed to call, but a loophole MIGHT allow recorded messages to be sent, and thus, frustrating those very people because they won’t have an option to say “STOP CALLING ME.” The Do Not Call List should be just that – DO NOT CALL. It shouldn’t be tampered with.
