ladelfina and others,

You can also use the "print selection" feature that is available sometimes. Highlight the relevant part of what you want to print, choose File/Print... and then click on "Selection" if it's there. It will print just what you want and nothing else. It's available to me in Windows XP using Firefox.

Are you including all the mailing label info? Usually you need to include that to get them to stop, then it works pretty well for me.

Sorry, no advice for your mom.

Haven't tried it lately, but what I used to do is cut the label out and mail it to them.. I'm sure some just blanket certain zip codes and don't care if you are not the recipient. Someone must have figured it's worth it to them, but it's just on such a vast scale I can't see how it makes sense.

I'm glad you have success, RunningBum.. maybe in recent years they are being more attentive to costs and such? Next time I am in the US, I will sit down with the pile and send out some more letters. Thanks for listening to my rant. It sounds petty but it's just part of a larger conundrum rolling around inside my head about "economic ecology", if you will.
