Comments:* Do ban calls from companies that I am NOT a customer of. * Don't ban interactive phone calls about offers from businesses that I AM a customer of already * If I can easily be added to the company's do not call list (pressing a key), then it's OK for businesses that I'm a customer of already to call me. * Written consent is a pain in the ass. If I have to give consent, then I want to be able to any way I can: verbally, by email, by web site form, or pressing a key after getting an interactive phone call. __ I got a call once from my bank asking me about unusual charges. I had just purchased a lot of things in Japan the before returning to US. I just confirmed that the charges were OK by pressing a key and felt much more safe and better taken care of. __ I've also gotten a marketing call from my cell phone provider to let me know about a deal. It actually applied to me and saved me money and I accepted by just hitting a key. __ It would suck if I couldn't have these type of services any more. Please take the above points into account when you write up the ban. __ Thank you for spending time on this issue.
