Re: [GreenYes] junk mail
Good question Tom!
You can send a request to the Direct Marketing Association to take your name
off of their lists. We did this about a year ago and we saw a huge drop in
junk mail.

Just send them your name with your signature to them asking that they take
your name off of their lists. Their address is:

Direct Marketing Association
  Mail Preference Service
  PO Box 9008
  Farmingdale NY 11735

Peace,
Ben Randolph
