How to cut down on junk mail

Ask to be removed. Write to Mail Preference Service, Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 9008, Farmingdale, N.Y. 11735. Be sure to provide your name, street address and zip code. Request that they instruct their members to remove you from their mailing lists. Once you write, you'll remain on the opt-out list for 5 years, at which time you'll have to write again. The Direct Marketing Association estimates that listing with their mail preference service will stop 75% of all national mailings. You should notice a reduction of your junk mail within 6 months.

Seriously! I had just decided I would jab my eyes out if you didn't post something new when I clicked on your blog and saw this lame-SC# post about junk mail. I mean sure it is useful but seriously. Thanks though for not making me jab my eyes out.
