We, the remnant of the snail mailers, understand that without junk mail there won't be any mail anymore.

I support his efforts, but I have my own ways of dealing with unsolicited mailings. Take the return envelopes, pre-paid postage anyway, and stuff them with junk. Pictures of the kids, coupons, love notes from ex's, and other junk mail, and return them. It keeps the USPS running, and confuses the hell out of the lady in the mail room at random credit card companies.

The utility worker who turned him in should be shot! How come people just can't mind their own business.
As far as coupons go, coupons are worthless. Just buy the unnamed brand. It is still cheaper than if you had a coupon for a named brand.
I take all of my junk mail, put it in the trash compactor and burn it in the wood stove.

I wouldn't send them anything personal, but I have cut up other junk mail to fit into their postage paid envelopes to send back to them.
