Letter: Thrift Savings Plan is not a stock market account

Regarding "Some participants protest new Thrift Savings Plan policy," a reader writes: The people that are protesting forget that TSP is a savings account, not a stock market account. If they want to play the stocks, by all means, they can take their money and go there. How many
of these "day traders" have offered to pay the increased costs of their trading? Most likely zero.  They've found a way to "game" the system and make other TSP participants pay for it, and now they complain when someone catches them?
