    Well if I was a member of the NRA, this is what I'd do; I'd sit in a rocking chair on my verandah with a shotgun and whenever the postman or junk mailer approached my letterbox I'd aim the gun at him and say "You just keep on movin' there boy!", and spit tobacco juice into the garden. Of course the gun wouldn't be loaded; that would be irresponsible.

    Bad plan. Do remember where the term "Going Postal" originated. ;)

    The worst thing about these catalogs are they are no good for using in the wood stove and no good for use as T.P., so what's the point?

    When I was in my early teens my family took a trip around the US visiting a bunch of national parks and such. One of the things we took along was a big bag of those "subscribe now" cards from magazines and "no postage required" envelopes from junk mail. Whenever we stopped somewhere for meals, gas, or whatever, we'd drop a handful in the closest big blue mailbox.

    That reminds me ... A friend once told me his teen-aged son and the son's best friend were in a crazy competition. They would mail off magazine subscriptions for the other one to magazines they had no interest in: senor's knitting patterns etc.

    I like the Stewart McDonald catalogs. I don't get a 2 year monthly subscription like they do when you order something from the U.S., but they still manage to send me a couple to another continent.

    1) Nothing wrong with receiving paper catalogs, regardless of the size. This obviously works for their sales. Don't like them? Throw them out.

    2) E-mails? Just unsubscribe.


    My heart bleeds for these First World problems that some folks are complaining about.

    Move to Uganda and you won't have them.

    Behind my beard.
    Or save 'em up for a weekend fire in the BBQ.

    Sit out looking at the stars with a glass of your favourite refreshment.

    Yep, I belong to them both and the NRA. Now I get stuff from Save the Wolves, Save the Foxes, Save the Horny Toads, Save the Salamanders, and more. NRA sends me insurance sales, credit watchdog sales, life insurance, canvassing or lobbying politically sales and raffles on guns.

    Good thing there isn't a Save the Ducks mailer ....I belong to Ducks Unlimited. Screw Daffy and his "sufferin' sucatash."

    I'm at my desk now going through the piles of mailers over the last week, Ocean Conservancy is another one.

    I got the Sweetwater mailings for several years after buying some strings. It was like getting the Sears catalog when I was a kid. I have no problem with that.

    Then a couple of years ago, I found a guitar I wanted. Got a good deal by talking to my Sweetwater rep. Almost no negotiation required and got a better price than me in person at Guitar Center in town. I have ordered too many things from them in the past 2 years.

    So the mailing works - eventually.
