Andrew Trommald started this petition to Ajit Pai

Personally, I used to be bombarded by messages from sales people about things I don’t want and they are trying to sell to me. Nowadays, I am being called far more often, but not by sales people; I am being called by these robotic voices, trying to sell things. These companies take advantage of seniors, and many of these things are even scams! I came to the realization that robot callers have no real benefit to society whatsoever! No, seriously, try to think of a situation where robot sales agents could actually help or improve society. Also, with human sales people, you can easily request for them to stop calling you. With robot callers, you usually have to wait until the end of the sales pitch and press a number, which is annoying; but, sometimes, they don’t give you a way to be removed from the call list. Then they continue to call you, with different things they want you to buy or sign up for. I was once called at 4 am, so that I could sign up for a student loan forgiveness program- while in high school! With robot sales people, they just use a shotgun approach and call as many people as possible and hope they find a few people dumb enough to sign up for their scam. This is borderline harassment! I am only 18, and really have no power by myself, so that is why I am starting a petition. I hope this petition can help encourage Ajit Pai of the FCC to pass some kind of rule against robot sales people, although this is my first petition. I believe I am not the only one experiencing this. It is really just a first world problem, but it would minorly improve a lot of lives, which is almost as important as greatly improving a few lives.
