Sick of junk mail in your postbox?

I was reading this post @ Insights and Rants :BarclayCard Breaks the Law, and was reminded that it is possible and actually very easy to prevent your mailbox (the one at the end of your driveway not the one on your pc unfortunately) from getting clogged up with junk mail and that telephone from ringing at the most inopportune moments.

The DMA (Direct Marketing Association) maintains a database of all those individuals that have elected not to receive addressed junk mail or cold calls called the DCM (Don't Contact Me) list. Before I provide with the link let me quote the warning provided on their website :
'Before you register however...
You should reflect on the fact that registering may well prevent you from receiving information which you would really like to have - thereby cutting you off from relevant and worthwhile opportunities. For example charities use telemarketing as an economical way to raise awareness and much needed support.'

Nice try guys!

Click here to get of those irrating lists now or call :

[Update : Those of you in the UK can do the same @ MPS Online. Thanks Colin.]

This is one of the first things I do whenever I move into a new place. For other Saffers in the UK check out MPS. Well worth the effort.

Unfortunately BarclayCard completely ignored the DMA list, even though ABSA is a DMA member. They instead referred me to www.optout.co.za which provides you with a mind-numbingly detailed form to fill in.

It is nice.
