More Phone Spam? Public comment could stop it....

The Federal Trade Commission is considering loosening the rules on robot phone spam, to allow those innocent robots to spam us on our telephones. One vendor says it can deliver 1.5 million messages a day, and that's just one vendor.

On the other hand, we do have the ability to comment, and you don't even have to lick a stamp... just go to this FTC web page and let them know how much you like phone spam (politely, please). You might even {Nudge-nudge, wink-wink, say no more!} suggest they include non-commercial enterprises and political calls in the ban on phone spam.... would that be going too far?
