  波士顿:那些获得资格认证的心理健康咨询专业人士正在为缅因州的一位经营者而不安,此人以每分钟收取1.99美元的价格聆听愤怒的客户对着话筒咆哮。菲利浦·杜瓦延每周能收到10至20个打到”出气热线”的电话,这项服务是他于2月份推出的,可以让打电话的人撒气———但是要付费。


  但是一些专业咨询服务机构对杜瓦延的生意心存不满,他们敦促检察官去调查他是否违反了缅因州的法律,本周二《波特兰新闻先驱报》报道了此事。”对有些人来说,撒气会使他们更加沮丧,”缅因州波特兰市社区咨询中心的莱斯丽·布兰卡托女士对该报说道,”而他每分钟还收1.99美元,这在我看来纯粹是剥削。”


  杜瓦延在不接听”出气热线”时是一名计算机修理工,他说他有来自美国东海岸的几十名顾客。”和别人一样,我这样做也是为了挣钱,”《新闻先驱报》引用他的话说,”但如果对人有帮助,那当然好极了。”BOSTON (Reuters) – Licensed mental-health professionals are upset about a Maine entrepreneur who charges $1.99 a minute to listen to angry callers rant and rave over the telephone. Philip Doyen receives between 10 and 20 phone calls a week to “Vent-Line”, a service he launched in February that allows callers to blow off steam — at a price.


  But some professional counseling services aren’t happy about Doyen’s business and are urging prosecutors to investigate whether he is breaking any state laws, the PortlandPressHerald newspaper reported on Tuesday. “For some people, venting is going to upset them more,” Leslie Brancato of the Community Counseling Center in Portland, Maine, told the paper. “That he’s charging $1.99 a minute is, in my opinion, totally exploitative.”

  Doyen, who works as a computer repairman when not operating Vent-Line, says he has dozens of customers along the US East Coast. “I’m in it for the money, like everybody else,” the PressHerald quoted him as saying. “If it helps people, great.”
