You've Got Mail

Isn’t it funny how our computer inbox would be filled with so many emails? The only sad part along this idea is the spam mails. Oh yeah, it really annoys me. The worst part is when the real mail accidentally gets through your bulk mail and you didn’t notice. By clicking the ‘empty the bulk mail’ button you will lose that mail forever without knowing whether you lost a really important business message, or an email from a long lost friend. Really sad. Which then made me wonder, what about if we go back to the same old mailboxes by the lawn sort of thing?

I know a lot of us still use this amidst the internet connection. It actually is more comforting and touching receiving handwritten mails rather than computerized forwarded messages. You’ll surely feel the effort when it’s written personally through pen and paper. That would be so wonderful! I came upon this site which is a distributor actually of high quality residential mailboxes as well as commercial mailboxes. I visited their site at mailboxiexchange (pronounced as mailbox exchange) and found quite a lot of different mailboxes to choose from.

It was really fun browsing at the different some where ancient looking, others a bit high tech and the rest are just pure outstanding mailbox designs. If you have a mailbox like the ones I saw being offered in that site I would be tempted to ask my friends to write me through air mail instead of the net. I urge you to check it out sometime. You know. Just for curiosity’s sake.

Again.
Know what you mean about spam, I have gotten used to it, it has become a way of life.
I couldn't live without email anymore, I'm afraid. It has made the world so much smaller.

Do Not Mail Opt-Out Law would be fair to everyone.

The proposed recent "Do not mail" is an Opt-Out law. Only those not desiring advertising mail need opt-out. Anyone desiring advertising mail can do nothing - and continue to receive it. Why deny those wishing to avoid advertising mail the power to do so?

I do not consider handling unwanted advertising placed against my will on my personal property to be a civic obligation!

The US Supreme Court said in the Rowan case in 1970, ““In today's [1970] complex society we are inescapably captive audiences for many purposes, but a sufficient measure of individual autonomy must survive to permit every householder to exercise control over unwanted mail. To make the householder the exclusive and final judge of what will cross his threshold undoubtedly has the effect of impeding the flow of ideas, information, and arguments that, ideally, he should receive and consider. Today's merchandising methods, the plethora of mass mailings subsidized by low postal rates, and the growth of the sale of large mailing lists as an industry in itself have changed the mailman from a carrier of primarily private communications, as he was in a more leisurely day, and have made him an adjunct of the mass mailer who sends unsolicited and often unwanted mail into every home. It places no strain on the doctrine of judicial notice to observe that whether measured by pieces or pounds, Everyman's mail today is made up overwhelmingly of material he did not seek from persons he does not know. And all too often it is matter he finds offensive.”

Furthermore, the Supreme Court said, “the mailer's right to communicate is circumscribed only by an affirmative act of the addressee giving notice that he wishes no further mailings from that mailer.

To hold less would tend to license a form of trespass and would make hardly more sense than to say that a radio or television viewer may not twist the dial to cut off an offensive or boring communication and thus bar its entering his home. Nothing in the Constitution compels us to listen to or view any unwanted communication, whatever its merit; we see no basis for according the printed word or pictures a different or more preferred status because they are sent by mail.”

We need a nationwide “Do Not Mail” law to create a one-stop, convenient place for homeowners to give senders the aforementioned affirmative notice that we do not want certain kinds of mail sent to our homes.
