Default Has anybody noticed USPS stopped crap....

Over last two week haven’t seen any mail spam... ie. Local flyers, coupons etc...

Most junk mail stopped. Still get the car warranty shit but all other gone!

Don’t miss it either. Save a postman

Hope this artifact sticks...

How’s it by y’all?

Still getting it here. Don't believe the USPS can refuse to deliver it if it's paid for.

As long as you can still get a discount for a BJ, it's all good.

No telemarketer calls but plenty of texts from DJT asking for campaign money.

They have gone down somewhat, but I'm still getting the scammers from India. I used to just call them dalits, lay out some choice curse words, then hang up, but I've found an even better approach. Turns out, they must be Muslims, because when you ask them why the world's perfect man was a pedphile that raped a 6 year old named Aisha, they positively get apoplectic. I laugh at them, then hang up.

It makes sense, because I doubt Hindus and Buddhists are into scamming people.

Good times, good times.

Less junk mail but it still outnumbers legit mail.


Lots less spam phone calls.


Still considering setting my default ring tone to "None" and then adding a ringtone for all the contact I want to hear from.

I got junk mail a few weeks ago addressed to my mother.

She died in 2004. She never lived at my address and I've moved twice since she died.

My sister-in-law was in between permanent addresses for a brief time, so my wife told her she could use our address temporarily. During that time she was shopping for various kinds of insurance. I now get about five pieces of junk mail every day from insurance companies and probably will continue to get it for the rest of my life.

I've been getting junk mail for my ex-wife at our house in PA. My ex-wife doesn't know the address. **** the USPS.

Turns out, those calls were people from Wuhan trying to warn us about the problem.

Yeah I noticed a reduction, but I would say it's been reduced by 75% for my house.

I run a call blocker, not in my address book and kicks to voice mail without ringing. Keeps those turd burglars from bughing me at all.
