I stop my junk mail by sending writing on the piece of paper that has my name on “Please remove me from your mailing list.” I place it in the postage-paid return envelope or spend the money and put it in my own envelope and send it back. It works about 99 percent of the time.
yep and junk mail is good for bizzness and I am pro bizzness !....keep it coming, cant wait for my next northern toll or Bass Pro Sporting goods catalog

RAISE bulk (junk) mail rates and you will make up for the shortfall.
I’m sick of them gouging those sending small packages.
And the marketing of your personal information is also "good for bidness", it's how they build their lists and send out credit card applications.
Unfortunately it is HORRIBLE for personal privacy rights (they traffic in socialist security numbers and other data they shouldn't have).
They bought off the legislators decades ago.
They are already talking of dropping 14% of their delivery schedule (dropping Saturday services altogether).
It can't get much worse. They raise the rate EVERY time they are permitted to.
“Im sick of them gouging those sending small packages.”
I agree, the cost of sending a small thing or two is unbelievable.
And international postage from Canada and England has gotten crazy. It always was high from France and Germany.
44% of junk mail ends up in the trash? That’s shocking. I mean it’s shocking to know that 56% isn’t thrown away. What happens to it? Do people eat it? Does it get flushed down the toilet?
They should print junk mail and those monster yellow page books on soft two-ply paper to make them useful.
they might do like I do and shred the mess so it makes good packing material or they may just burn it. We have the option of either trash collection or burning our trash where we live. Hey, and guess what? The USPS total junk mail (which includes Standard and Nonprofit) volume is approximately 70% of the total letter mail processed. Then you are left with only 30% of the mail processed being First Class. Of course there are First Class Parcels, Media Mail, Priority Mail and Express Mail, and without that the USPS barely keeps afloat; if Standard and Nonprofit were eliminated or a regulatory bill was passed to allow people to ‘opt-out’, the proverbial sky would fall on them. Don’t forget the huge salaries and bonuses the Postmaster General, the Board and all those ‘other’ high-ranking positions are raking in, even though the USPS is supposed to be a government entity and not to be in competition with other parcel services like UPS and FEDEX.
It’s all a huge mess and it desperately needs cleaning up.
So... I took his return address and while in the doctor's office shortly thereafter I pulled out EVERY SINGLE business reply mail insert. Needless to say that jackass got a LOT of magazine subscriptions, embroidered towels, Franklin Mint plates and figurines.
BILL "ME" LATER!
OOOOO, you wicked little thing you! ‘Snail Mail Spam’.
The USPS is a government entity that is supposed to have a limited budget to allow it to operate and to pay its employees, but it has become a behemoth that is out of control because it has been allowed to exceed its mandate.
In our present administration it won’t be called to account, but if we can get a Republican or Independent majority in the House and Senate, I would imagine it would finally be busted down and brought back under control. It has to at some point, or it’s going to crash just like the economy is going to. It can’t sustain itself like it is now for very much longer, and people simply won’t pay the higher prices for mail and do their correspondence on the internet.
I say let the Postal Service die, it’s going to tank in a very short time anyway.
There are definately pranksters out there in the world that you really don't want to upset.
