Take the little prepaid envelope they give you and stuff it full of what ever other junk mail you have laying around and mail it back to them. They only have to pay for the postage on it if you mail it back and over sized envelopes cost a little more. After awhile maybe they will listen.
Oh **** that's a great idea, finally a way to relieve the burden on my garbage budget, a good percentage of my home's garbage is nothing but JUNK mail and garbage disposal here is NOT free!... MOST of the time I can recycle it (which may not cost but still takes time) but I like your idea a lot better!

Did a little looking for a Do Not Mail List

This may be of help to everyone on this site.
Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Quote: but for anyone to say something is free when ANYTHING at all (EXCEPT the product itself) gets involved then it is NOT free and should not and CAN not be labeled thusly. It's not only false advertising but bad business, and it may even be against the law but I don't know for sure.

Jim @ TURF here. Just to re-state what I said about this:

1. We don't "give" subscriber names to anyone (advertisers or anyone else)
2. Our list does occasionally get rented and I personally have to give the okay on each company requesting it. And believe me, very few get the list.
3. If you want us to keep your name away from any offers (in other words, NOT allow your name to be included in these few rentals) please let us know. We can flag your name and thus will never be a source of offers in your mail box.

Lastly -- we do not engage in false advertising ... we are a very reputable organization ... renting names is certainly not against the law (and I take real offense at the suggestion that we would engage in illegal activity).

So are #1, #2, and #3 clear enough? Or should I re-state them again?

Junk Mail

Hi Ken,
I checked my records and you are not on our rented list. The update went in the middle of December, so it may be that this list was obtained before the new list went into effect or that they got it from someone else.
