Comments:Do not allow companies to use pre-recorded messages for telemarketing purposes. Those types of calls are just as disruptive and intrusive as a live person. If a person is on the Do Not Call list they DO NOT WANT TO BE CALLED, PERIOD!!! By any company, organization, political campaign, etc. Political campaigns should be required to abide by the Do Not Call list also. I personally will not vote for a candidate that I receive a pre-recorded message from. I will certainly not do business with any company that I received a pre-recorded message from. And if I do already do business with them then I will stop if they call me with a pre-recorded message. A telemarketing call is a telemarketing call whether it is a live person or a pre-recorded message. Do not weaken the Do Not Call list!! Instead work to strength it by putting more limitations in place to reduce and eliminate this very unwanted and intrusive form of harassment!
