Could we ever make junk mail illegal?

Could we ever make junk mail illegal?

Week after week I find myself throwing out piles of useless mail. Direct marketing mail that is printed on glossy pamphlets and whatever else. This morning a guy dropped off a huge “yellow pages” book in my driveway. What the shit is this? I have 5 of them stacked in my closet already. I never use them because…I HAVE THE INTERNET. Like most of our country. We use the internet these days. It’s the future, motherfucker. If I want a yellowbook I’ll go to the yellowbook store and ask for one. Go make a yellowbook store and see how well that yellowbook store does.

Anyway, this got me thinking about junk mail some more and I thought to myself “Hmmm…I wonder if there’s ever been some kind of proposed legislation to make ‘junk mail’ illegal. It would obviously help save a lot of trees as well as energy.”

Then 2 seconds later I realized that these companies are paying the United States Postal Service to have their junk delivered from home to home and that will probably be a reason why this shit probably can’t be stopped.  Apparently, junk mail constitutes 52% of mail volume!!! Absolutely insane.

Here’s a story from Newsweek explaining the insanity:

I don’t know how effective this is, but someone gave me a link to this website where you can submit your name to a “Do Not Mail” list:

Thoughts on that?

Lastly, here’s a wonderful little ditty from the Circle Jerks who were complaining about this same shit in the early 80’s.

As it is plain to see, complaining gets us places.
