PhoneBooks

Freecycling AT&T Yellow Pages

Are you serious???  Not just one, but two!  And why is “phone books” my most tagged category???  Just earlier today I was thinking that that little check-box wouldn’t be used to categorize any of my blog posts anymore.  Ha!

You can look at my earlier posts for how I feel about phone books…

If you haven’t heard about Freecycle.org, it’s a forum where people can request things and give things away (“offer” things) with no money changing hands.

Opt In or Opt Out? Phone Books Revisited

I knew I couldn’t be the only one mad about this wasteful and useless product:

–  Blog – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/anya-strzemien/how-to-stop-the-phone-boo_b_84773.html

– Another blog – http://www.commoncraft.com/how-stop-receiving-phone-books-and-yellow-pages

– Petition – http://www.paperlesspetition.org/ 

– Opt in versus opt out – http://blog.kelseygroup.com/index.php/2007/11/20/should-publishers-embrace-opt-out/

On another note, my driver’s license used to have a place where I could opt in to be an organ donor…  What happened to that check-box?
