Just off the phone with my sis who told me she is going to save up all the junk mail she gets in a year and MAIL it to the local KH with a note attached "Since you feel free to give me YOUR junk mail, I'm giving you MINE"

She says that she even finds WT and Awake! mags now...no doubt counted as "placements"...it appears some of the locals must have lost that true "witnessing" spirit, just going through the motions now so they can turn in a time card...drive by "witnessing" lol

If everyone did this, and called out JWs for dragging innocent children into potentially dangerous situation, there would no doubt be some noolight!!

I'm pretty sure it's illegal to put stuff in other people's mailboxes that hasn't been sent through the mail.

When Is Mail Not Mail?

Fort Myers, Cape Coral Fl —When is mail not mail? Perhaps you think that virtually anything can be put in your mailbox—because it’s your mailbox! This is not true. The mail box is your personal property and access to the mailbox is granted only to the U.S. Postal Service and its employees for the delivery of the mail. Government private express statutes state that only matter bearing postage can be placed in a mailbox. Here are two examples of “mail that isn’t mail.”

Communities (or communities within communities) may have various social or other functions that they wish their residents to know about. Committee chairs or group leaders may feel that it’s perfectly o.k. to place notices or flyers on, in, or between the flag and mailbox rather than sending these through the mail, thus saving postage costs. However, these notices and flyers are subject to regular postage and communities may receive a bill from the Post Office to that effect. As northern friends return from their summer hiatus, they need to be informed of this potential cost; they are encouraged to take their information pieces to the door rather than using the mailbox.

As the political season ramps up into full gear this fall, politicians and their representatives are also being reminded that their campaign materials must not be placed in, on, attached to or supported by mailboxes as they may also be subject to full postage charges.

Placing notices, flyers, and other materials in or near mailboxes might result in an unintended consequence, especially if a community has a number of seasonal residents or vacant properties. Should the information not be removed from the mailbox area, unscrupulous individuals might get the idea that the facility is not being habitated at the current time and would be a prime location for a home invasion.

Aaaand, it looks like your bosses don't approve either.

*** km 6/91 p. 3 Announcements ***
The Society has on occasion received correspondence from the postal service and other individuals about literature being placed in mailboxes without proper postage. Publishers should be reminded that, according to government regulations, anyone who puts material into a mailbox without having properly paid the postage faces a fine of up to $300 for each offense.

All your sister has to do OP...is call the local congregation and ask that she not be called upon anymore. Or at least that is what I've always been told and have heard.

If she wants a more official notice..instead of paying to ship them her junk mail..she can just mail them one letter asking that they stop leaving her the literature.

Ask those who have tried.
It does not work, Jehovah's Witnesses have zero respect for the wishes nor beliefs of anyone but themselves.
I say everyone start dropping off their mail and it might stop.

I tried and it worked very well indeed. I never heard from then again for over 2 years when I told them not to visit.

I tend not to believe anecdotal stories that this doesn't work. Particularly from people like "Hmm" aka "AuroraMom" who always comes up with the most ridiculous, unbelievable stories that are clearly not true.

I think the Witnesses always honor a person's wishes not to be called upon.

Gareth,
Unlike other Real JW"S on here, they can reason and even admit when the WT & GB have been wrong w/ out denounceing or any disrespect to their faith, however, I beleive Gareth, If you could just for one TIME STOP w/ the Beleiveing everyone is always LYING and yet you can't or the better word is WILL NOT, STOP and read what you write bck to yourself, as u sound absolutelly rediculouis w/ ALways claiming someone is always lying against the society..Can't YOU EVER be humble enough(is that NOT what Your NWT teaches is to be humble and NOT SELF RIGHTOUS?)to ever stop and BE HONEST instead of jumping to the aid and rescue of the WT & GB? YOU are NEVER honest w/ anyone on here nor even w/ in YURSELF..You fast and quick to respond yet, really NEVER making any valid points all because you CHOOSE TO do this on every dam post..None of your posts are even any different, all are of the same, "GARETH" coming to the aid and rescue to the WT & GB and Lets not forget those whom u respect and Back up , you know the ones who have been PROVEN TO HAVE LIED, threaten, stalk and abuse (harrass), these are again ones in which u are so proud to defend and come to the rescue even when clearly been proven wrong along w/ yourself..
Being selfrightous WILL NOT GET U INTO THE KINGDOM, The BIBLE promisses this, yet u CHOOSE TO BE self rightous at what? Lying, stalking, harrassing, abusive, and Controling people?
So is your EVERLASTING life really WORTH These IMPERACT humans?
I know if u claim to know your bible it puzzles me why you continue the dangerous corse your on? can u answer me on this? Why would u risk your LIFE for this?
It hardly seems all worth it, and NOW I have seen enough of your posts to Know your tactics, and NO U wILL not turn this around about me, I am asking legit questions, iif u CHOOSE not to answer than just say so, or answer, either way I wont lose sleep, I am just wondering one you makes all these claims about others LYING when CLEARLY your "JW"S WANNA BE"S" have done so not once but on a daily basis, and yet you ALWAYS TURN THE TABLES, u are good at this, thats why i say you really dont say anything in your posts, u accuse MANY if NOT ALL accept for the Crew u defend..that doesnt say much at all.
to Claim others are ALWAYS doing the lying reminds me of always the "GUILTY ONE" constantly pointing fingers at others to get "BALME AND GULIT OFF OF HIMSELF"..U do this all too well gareth..And YEs, You are GULITY, Guilty at the very least of Being 100% WRONG on EVERYBODY, and Gulity by assoceation of whom u defend..Reminds me again of a court room situation, I remmeber a Judge saying to a person "JUST LIKE U GARETH, always blameing the other guy for misconduct when really it has been YOU all along", the Judge made a very EXCELLENT POINT to REMEMBER::::::

"Not ALL THESE PEOPLE CAN BE LYING"..
Think about that Gareth next time you deside "ALL OF US PEOPLE ARE LYING", NOT EVERYONE CAN BE, its NOT even possible...And that came from a JUDGE..Not ME ...

She lies so outrageously even the apostates don't believe her whacky stories.

I wish i had known some of these people more so I can come to an honest opinion of certian ones..
I hope now w/ this comment, about how I do enjoy some of her posts that I dont get any hate messages?
I had no idea that hmmmand her are one in the same..I have only been on here since oct. so i am unaware of some, I have read some of her posts and she seems real sincere? Why is it that u dont like her besides the obvious?
she seems to have the children at her best in heart? thats jsut what is see, tell me something different..
I appologize if I seemed a bit harsh, i just wish you could rethink at times becaue I have read SOme of your posts where u start out making good points even though I may disagree, my moto is we ALL can learn from each other even if we disagree..Am I right?

Have a good morning..

Ok thats an improvement so you admit the most or some you call apostates or apostates do tell the truth, or their is much truth in what they say.

excellent, as it has been proved, even from your wT literature.

either the WT lies on occations or God does, can't have it both ways. Make sense even to those you call apostates.

Don't be silly, I said no such thing. In fact the way you have twisted and embellished my words here is a good example of the kind of dishonesty we come to expect from the majority of opposers on this forum.

Wow the truth really bugs you doesn't it?
Odd from a bethelite, who lies he is an "unbaptized publisher".

Sorry, why don't you do a little research?
Our town had a giant "NO JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES" sign across a front lawn, on a busy street.
The cong called promised if they took down the sign, JWs would NOT call.
You got it, the little pests did!
Sign went back up.
Jehovah's Witnesses just refuse to respect the beliefs or wishes of anyone but themselves.

want to see a JW"S jump along with a mormon at the same time at the doors? for starters you can throw water or a coke soda at the Mormons, and a cross to the Jws..It works everytime..

I truly think if we all start chastising them for dragging innocent children schlepping propaganda, instead of learning or playing, they will at least stop putting children in danger.
