    WASHINGTON-The Federal Communications Commission Monday told telemarketers
    that they must make arrangements to obtain mobile-phone numbers because it
    is illegal to use autodialers to call wireless phones.

    "A telemarketer may make appropriate arrangements with a user to obtain the
    data in a manner that best meets its business needs. Consistent with the
    approach adopted by the commission to rely on the telemarketing industry to
    select solutions that best fit telemarketers' needs, I anticipate that you
    will review the Nov. 21 letter from NeuStar Inc. and the options it presents
    to make available the information required to determine that a wireline
    number has been ported to a wireless service," said K. Dane Snowden, chief
    of the FCC's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, noting that NeuStar
    had sent a letter that better explains the options available to
    telemarketers to ensure that mobile-phone numbers are not called by
    autodialers.

    Snowden was responding to concerns of the Direct Marketing Association. It
    has been illegal for nearly a decade to place telemarketing calls to mobile
    phones but it became harder for telemarketers to comply once the FCC ruled
    in favor of wireline-to-wireless portability.

    "DMA's current Wireless Suppression Service list will continue to function
    as it does currently for new numbers that are issued to wireless carriers.
    That will not eliminate the problem that arises with intermodal porting,"
    said Jerry Cerasale, DMA senior vice president, in a letter last month to
    the FCC. "It will become a very real problem if marketers are unable to
    identify numbers that are newly ported from wireline to wireless service. In
    short, our members will not know-and they will have no way of knowing-that
    they not place autodialed calls to such numbers."

    Solution is simple. Make autodialing ANY number a capital punishment
    offense.

    Of course, this will cost your congressman some big bucks from the
    lost bribes he's been receiving from the spammers.....

    I think if they want to dial a number, they should have to dial it manually.
    That still gives the telemarketers the ability to call you, it just costs
    them more to do it.

    What amazes me is there must be, out there in the fog, a HUGE number
    of Jeff Foxworthy's sign carriers, the real STUPID PEOPLE, who are
    BUYING from these telemarketers. They should all be required to carry
    one of his signs saying, "I'm Stupid. I bought from a telemarketer."

    Maybe that would slow 'em up more....(c;

    Amen. Blame the morons that make the offense worth committing. Victims of
    any offense that bend over so willingly are food for the infection.
    Telemarketers are like muggers. They do it once, and if it works out they
    do it again, and again, and again . . . I hate telemarketers, but my hatred
    is no motivation for them to stop if people keep forking over the money.

    So the next time someone buys 5 years of "free" magazines for several
    hundred dollars from a telemarketer, be sure to take their phone and use it
    to plug either their inbound or outbound orifice, whichever is more
    convenient at the time.

    BTW, that wasn't Jeff Foxworthy, it was some OTHER redneck that only has one
    joke. Foxworthy has the "you might be a redneck if ___," and some other guy
    has the sign thing.
