===========================================That is exactly what I intend to do also....
Way too much trouble to return it...I never ordered it and have
absolutely no intention of paying for it...
I haven't gotten one of these mailings, but from what I was told
elsewhere (WoodCentral), the book comes with a letter explaining what
to do, along with return postage and label. One of the options, legally
required (though notification of the option isn't), is to keep the book
and do nothing, after which no more books will be sent.
I don't get the uproar. Essentially, if you want the series, respond.
If you don't, keep the book. It's a form of bulk mail, similar to what
we all get every day of the week, and has been an accepted part of
mailbox contents for decades. It is not a marketing tactic I'd care to
use, but I cannot understand why it irritates so many so much. WWJ's
marketing department (distinct, by the way, from the editorial
department, which is also the case at other magazines) has done about
all they can to ease the load for the recipient.
