    Odd email I got...

    "When you get those pre-approved letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and junk like that, most of them come with postage paid return envelopes, right?

    Well, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little envelopes! Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Or a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their application back! Just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them. Heck, you can send it back empty if you want to just to keep 'em guessing!

    Let's turn this into a chain letter! Eventually, the banks and credit card companies will begin getting all their crap back in the mail. Let's let them know what it's like to get junk mail, and best of all... THEY are paying for it! Twice!

    Let's help keep our postal service busy since they say e-mail is cutting into their business, and that's why they need to increase postage again!

    Send this to a friend or two or three...or fifty..."
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    I have to admit I did that once. I got a mailing from the Sierra Club that had, no exaggeration, about 14 separate pieces of paper in it of different sizes: the donation appeal, plus various sizes of post card, decal, bookmark, etc. I can't remember them all. I stuffed them all back into the return envelope and told them to stop wasting paper while they were telling everyone else to save the trees.
