Okay, they may still be 1,000 sheets per roll but...are they still the nice little square sheets or are they rectangular?
Think about it. If each sheet on a roll is reduced by even 1/8 of an inch, consider how much less paper would have to be used to produce one roll, especially if the rolls are narrower?
This is the true "dumbing down" of toilet paper.
As for "every manufacturer follows suit," consider the fact that what we once accepted as 16-oz. cans of fruits and vegetables are now 14-oz. or less...and, oh joy, we get to pay more for less. Yep!
The canned goods scam has been going on for nearly 20 years, along with the long-gone 3-pound container of coffee and the 1-pound package of sliced bacon. I've noticed and I'm not a happy camper!!!
