The Joy of Junk Mail

My friends, my relatives and I get far too many mass-mailed solicitations for credit card applications. These provide easy pickings for the improvident and for identity thieves. My little way of getting back at these credit card companies is to:

1. Remove all identifying characteristics from the solicitation's literature.
2. Send back what is left of the solicitation in the included envelope stamped "no postage necessary."

When enough people do this, such dead-tree spam will stop, and not a moment too soon.
