The top voted question was submitted by Tony Robertson and received 201 votes. Melbourne Press Club President Mark Baker asked David Thodey the winning question on Tony's behalf.
“Telstra, via Sensis, commits environmental vandalism on a massive scale by dumping millions of unwanted copies of your print directories on our doorsteps. If Telstra is truly committed to a digital future and to corporate sustainability, will you move to an opt-in service for the Yellow and White Pages, rather than a poorly advertised and designed opt-out service that simply doesn’t work?”
