Do Members Of Congress Care About Calls To Their Offices Anymore?

Serious question. 10 years ago they legitimately did. Staffers logged them. I have a vague sense that "lol no" is the answer now, for good reasons and bad ones, but I actually don't know.

Obviously even then most members couldn't be successfully pressured on most issues, no matter how many angry calls, but there was some cultural norm of pretending to listen.
