      I don't mean Emails I'm talking about the vast amount of junk that Royal Mail drops through our letter boxes on a regular basis.
      I adopt a simple strategy now if it's addressed to "The Occupier" it goes back into a postbox :).Let Royal mail have it back.I have been know to gather up Pizza advertising and when I have a Pile from the same place,which doesn't take long where I live,The next time I pass the place it goes through their letterbox :)

      I love your way of thinking there APS :) I usually just rip it up and throw it in the bin but that way seems alot better :) really annoying the amount that comes through the letter box to be honest, shouldn't be allowed in my eyes but the people doing it will always have an excuse.

      I usually get them daily and just remove them. My email account for my site has managed to bring in spam too so having to remove that too can be annoying.

      Hahaha great idea I got to start doing that. As for me I dislike it but nothing I can really do with it. Advertising is everywhere you can't avoid it.

      the junk mail i get are mostly offers from shops and restaurant, pizza places, some time they are useful but most of the time they are just driving me crazy, they fill my mailbox and all my important envelops come home crumpled.

      I receive plenty of mail and a lot of it is junk. Auto insurance places that want me to start a policy or colleges wanting me to sign up with them. The list goes on...

      My mum used to have one of these on her door a few years ago now and it always worked a treat, which is quite a surprise because some people usually ignore things like that.

      I also like your way of thinking! I may use your tactic. I get way too much junk mail. I just rip it up and in the trash it goes. All those newspaper fliers are annoying, too! I wish they would not fill my box with that junk.
