Comments:Clearly, with political risks abating, the FCC is reverting to its mission to screw telecom consumers with industry-directed regulation. In a remarkably suctorial administration, the FCC may be the single most pathetic instance of regulatory capture. If you bend us over for this latest instance of privacy rape, many consumers will respond by keeping phones unplugged from the jack. Naturally, this will compromise the lifeline function of POTS service. But you don't care about that -- clearly what's most important to the commission is kissing industry ass with continual privacy encroachments. Aren't there any old timers there, miraculously unpurged by administration hacks, who retain a shard of integrity?
