    Amazon & Ebay and on-line shopping will come to its rescue. And blight the down-towns and high-streets the world over.

    In the U.K. Royalmail has “DirectMail”, one of their products. Which delivers junkmail. One has to ask to opt out receiving it else you get it.
    When I did, I had the regular postman beg me not to do it since it was providing Royalmail important revenue. I insisted I didn’t want any junkmail. Whenever my regular postie is off, I always get the bloody things.

    That isn’t the problem, CONgress is the problem, but why waste time posting facts.

    The first postage stamps in the US, circa 1845, cost about $3.40 in todays dollars. If Congress had allowed the USPS to keep up with inflation from that starting point.

    You bring back some good memories, MasterK,
    As a child visiting my uncle in Louisiana, one of our ‘chores’ while horseback riding was to go to the mail box out by the highway. It was two miles one way, and we had to open and close two fences to get around the grate in the road that kept the cattle in their pastures. The actual post office was a twenty minute drive away.
    Thank you for your comment.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    “I still get bills in the mail as well as tons of junk mail.”

    While I, on the other hand, get tons of bills and only a few pieces of “junk mail”. I wonder what’s wrong.

    @masterskrain: FedEx and UPS have the USPS deliver a quarter of their packages, including a lot of the rural routes even if a box is sent via the private companies. Who want to control the USPS unions and their competition and their own pricing: thus their lobbyists that have talked Congress into requiring the Postal service to fund 70 years’ worth of pension in 10 years’ time, which is what the financial problems of the USPS are all about.

    Didn’t the comedian Gallagher suggest we have the Jehovah Witnesses deliver the mail?

    I only had email in ‘95. In the late ’80s and early ’90s we swapped pirated stuff with American universities via DAT tapes sent via snail mail. BBS locally but only between uni computer centres.


    But…in 1981, I used to join my older brother on his night shifts at a local factory in their computer room. We’d end up printing stuff like:


    or soft porn pin-ups in similar format.

    @ruff:Yes. yes, I am ashamed.

    And the simplest way to deal with the problem would be to REPEAL THAT STUPID LAW, but I haven’t heard a single congresscritter make that proposal. Morons, the lot of ’em!

    So you want a medal or just a chest to pin it on?
