It falls in the category of "Doctor, it hurts when I do this.  Don't do 
that."  Even the most dense CSR managers figure it out after a few 

The other "don't do that" is never configure Music on Hold for any NOC/SOC
lines.  Few things are more annoying than a eight hour trouble shooting 
conference bridge, and one of the dozen NOC/SOCs on the bridge hits
the Hold button.
