I recall seeing this thing on the Daily Show some time ago where they interviewed a bunch of people who said they hated the postal service because they got so much junk mail. It pissed me off so much. Like, do you think it's the post office itself sending you that stuff? What, would you prefer they go through your mail and toss out anything they think you don't need? How hard is it to throw out junk mail anyway?

Yeah, to me that's as stupid as asking Google to manage the spam on your Gmail account. I mean I guess they try to, to some extent, but...

If you really don't want to receive mail from a particular company I think you can actually call or write them and request it. Or sign up for the Do Not Mail list, which won't cut down on all of them, but at least some of it. It DOES cost these companies money to mail out all that crap; most of them care whether that money gets sunk into people who will never use their service anyway.

Sorry for the double post, but this seemed relevant. From xkcd:

If you hover over the image on the original page, there's also a quote about the derogation of the sanctity of marriage, lol.
