Between Scylla and Charybdis.
good luck finding one of those boxes
Not if you need it to arrive by a specific date
Get Louis DeJoy & all of his minions out of the USPS NOW.
Gee… what a surprise that using servers and network equipment and software that is owned and maintained by strangers could allow strangers to view your communications? /s
There’s no joy in LeJoyville. C’mon, Biden, get people in there to FIRE that agency-wrecker. And while you’re at it, how about pushing Congress to end the insane requirement on USPS pensions.
Has any of the boxes and sorting machines that DeJoy removed been found and returned?
All these people “concerned” about tracking by government and Bill-Gates-microchips in your vaccines, have done their research on their GPS-enabled phones that they carry on their person every minute of every day.
De @#$%^&*() Joy…
No dear, they don’t send you free cookies . . . .stop asking.
Aaaah, to live in a world without Louis DeJoy! (Heavy sigh!)
It’s called snail mail because it’s slow. However, it’s still the most private way to communicate.
Next thing, DeJoy will be reading your snail mail… muhahhhhahaha
Says the person carrying a smart phone all the time.
Umm. OK, here’s how:
1: Actually talk to people. On the phone. Landline by preference. Or best, in person.
2: Wilkinson has a point there. Arrange your affairs so you can afford the several days that a first class letter now takes. And mail it from an actual USPS station, not a box.

3: Get a VPN. Good ones range from about $4 to $10 per month. Proton is good. Mozilla offers a good one. CNet has several articles comparing some of them. Cheap, even free VPNs exist, but you will likely find them slow and possibly not quite perfect in other ways.
4: Use “PGP” (pretty good privacy) with your “usual” e-correspondents. You may have to get the Mozilla Thunderbird email program (or some equivalent). This one is what I call “picky to set up” and others call “advanced users only”. But there are guides and plugins to help.
5: Don’t use company computers or phones for personal things: Your company has the right and may have the desire and ability to track your use of their hardware and software.
6: Get the “Privacy Badger” and “Cookie Autodelete” plugins for your browser. And if you use Facebook, get “Fluff Busting Purity”.

7: Live with it. Opt out where you can, and accept that everybody will buy what data about you that they can afford. Think of it as an advantage: Amazon, Kohls, Wayfair will know what you’re looking for and they’ll show you something that’s textually sort of similar. Oh well…
It’s been 1984 for quite a few years now!
Postal Board: Sack DeJoy!
Behold the might of the USPS! Because your letter might get delivered.
and don’t send a birthday card or anything that looks like a check is in it … there’s been a rash of theft at post office in the Columbus area
The US Postal Service is sending me pictures of the letters and packages I can expect to be delivered that day. Those pictures could easily be going elsewhere.
