Today, my wife received the big orange envelope in the mail. Her
personalized invitation to join the Handyman Club of America as a charter
member. How many years now have they been recruiting charter members? I
don't know how in the hell they got her name. Even got the "Mrs." right in
I snagged her free gift - the glue spreader, aka a drill bit guide. That
makes four I have now. My kids drew some pictures, my wife grabbed some
expired coupons and we stuffed the postage paid envelope full of our "junk
mail" and sent it back to them.
Try "Sieze and Desistered" some time, too.
"i" before "e", except after "c", what a weird society.

I write "DISEASED" on the face of the return envelope and send it back

If you want to _be_sure_ that they don't mail you again, just trot down
to the Post Office, and ask for a "Form 1500". Fill it out, which
involves claiming that *YOU* (and *nobody* -- not the Post Office, or
even the U.S. Supreme Court can override your evaluation) find the
material to be obscene, and don't want any more mailing from that company.
Not only do they have to stop sending you 'stuff', they have to remove
your name/address/etc. from _all_ their records. This means that they
can't rent/sell your name/address to somebody else who wants to junk mail
Related info: For those getting the subscription 'renewal' notices from
the people -not- related to the magazine; sending 'fake' invoices is
*illegal*. The Federal law is "39 USC 3001 (d)". The post office takes
a _very_ dim view of such activities. Go to the Post Office, again, and
ask for "Form 8165". You'll need to include a copy of the 'invoice' *and*
a copy of the face of the envelope, with the complaint when you submit it.
