Yellow Envelope junk mail


Junk Mail

As a greenie, while electronic junk mail frustrates me, it's nothing compared to the frustration I feel when we get snail mail junk here, especially considering we have one of those "No Junk Mail" stickers. I'm starting to think I may have to be more specific. It's such a waste of resources considering very few people want them and often just throw such crap away away.

This latest piece of [expletive] junk mail disuses itself as a legitimate piece of business correspondence with a proper envelope and fake franked stamp. Upon opening though, its just a huge slab of loose leaf advertisements peddling everything from phone contracts to hit men (I presume). Despite not asking for it (opting in) and having a notice on my mailbox stating I did not want it (opting out) they gave it to me anyway.

I already have contracts with Telstra and Optus alas, but as for the rest I will not be purchasing goods from the following folk for supporting such a dodgy enterprise. I'm not linking to their sites so I don't inadvertently give them Google Juice, and I'm showing them in a cloud to make it look less icky. Thank you.
