Everyday New Mexico and Minnesota vacation spots and pamphlets arrive. Its all a plot to keep the postal carriers working.

I have also been getting explicit Porn mail. I entered something nasty in the last 2 weeks. I have to be really careful who is around when the email is opened....

*sigh*

My mailbox has been full for weeks, I mean FULL! Like 10 a day, some in huge envelopes. I feel so bad for the waste of paper, would love to know where they are coming from, they are from all over, MA, TX, LA, AZ, etc, etc, etc. Today I got a map of New England from Best Western, I started to toss it and remember it will come in handy when we fly up there for Thanksgiving. :)

I get four or five porn emails everyday. This really makes me mad because my 12 year old son using this computer for school work and has asked me about it. Any suggestions on how to get off this list. Thanks.

Me too--- and catalogues-- OMG, the catalogs! From companies I would never be interested in! I hate waste and the waste involved in producing and mailing these catalogs is tremendous! My mailbox is full every single day and every day 90% of the mail is in the recycling bag within 5 minutes!

PS- How many OLS'ers are receiving THIS OLD HOUSE? I have inadvertently signed up for that mag at least 5 times!!

My Mailman must think I am planning some trip!! I get at least 5 or 6 brochures from Texas (just about every city and town), Louisiana, New Hampshire, Vermont, New Mexico. Arizona, Virgina, Georgia, Blue Ridge mountains, South Carolina, Kentucky, Minnesota and my own state of Wisconsin...the list goes on and on....

then add in all the magazines that have been hitting my house lately too (usually followed by a bill that I write "Did not order this" and return to sender), my little mailbox is too full to put wins in...LOL
I forgot to mention all the fliers from Florida and Universal studios, Sea world and Disney that have been flooding my mailbox too!
on the other hand, in one of the brochures today was a map of all the New England states..I thought that was useful!
