Long-time readers of my blog will remember the saga of Honda Village, which offended me to the nth degree after we bought a minivan from them back in 2007, first by incessantly spamming my wife and me for many months despite many requests for them to stop, and then by incessantly sending us junk mail… Read More »
If you’re anti-junk-mail (the paper stuff, not email spam) like I am, then you may have seen people recommend using a a U.S. Postal Service Prohibitory Order to stop junk mail from a particular sender when nothing else works. In a nutshell, you fill out a form telling the Postal Service that you consider the… Read More »
After seven years, Micro Center still can’t handle, “Don’t send me junk mail,” or putting valid URLs in their mailings.
For many years, I’ve been working assiduously to rid my (postal) mailbox of junk mail. The ongoing damage to the environment caused by the many tons of junk mail sent every day to people who don’t even bother to look at it is offensive, and want nothing to do with it. I wrote back in… Read More »

I received a response the same… Read More »
In the last six months I have received no less than 16 promotional mailings from Comcast, many of them only a few days apart. I have tried repeatedly to get them to stop sending me these mailings, to no avail. I filed a complaint about it with the Better Business Bureau; not only did Comcast… Read More »
I periodically post about organizations which can’t handle one of these two simple requests: (1) don’t spam me; (2) don’t send me junk mail. If an organization is incapable of implementing effective policies and procedures to accommodate these two straightforward requests from donors, they are probably also incapable of implementing effective, efficient policies and procedures… Read More »
This came from Herb Chambers Honda a couple of days ago: This one is a tiny, tiny bit less deceptive than the Honda Village mailings: notice how it has the word “Auto” hidden in the return address!
