Travis LeBlanc is the head of the FCC Enforcement Bureau. Tom Wheeler put him in that position. He’s clearly an Obama technocrat.
I see big changes already, and they are positive. As I’m going through the list, it is obvious the Enforcement people are going after the “Vewy Quiet” radio stations, forcing them to either file STA requests or sell their derelict stations. Whether they are using my list, I don’t know 😉 more likely, they are monitoring signals via an NSA satellite and finding the missing signals.
But if he were here, I would hug him for something else he just did. EBay is preparing to sell off PayPal and unilaterally changed their terms of service – that unless you cancel your PayPal account, you are consenting to receive robocalls – including to your cell phone – even if you never gave them you cell phone number.
I tried to cancel my account which had $.67 in it for the last 10 years. You can’t close your account unless the balance is $0.00. You can’t transfer amounts less than $1.00, and sending a paper check costs $1.50. I was able to call their toll free number and think the account is now closed.
The FCC is kicking Paypal’s ass in the strongest possible terms. Inaction is not consent to receive robocalls in violation of Federal law, which carries a fine of up to $16,000 per message.
