I love Junk Mail.
Specifically printed, mailed, Junk Mail.
So many people complain about junk mail, come up with ways to STOP the junk mail. But hear me out. This will be short.

Besides the fact that
PRINTING = JOBS, as in for people, in a world where humans' jobs are increasingly eliminated and replaced by robots.
Let's consider the alternatives.
There will always be marketing. It will never die. The other options huge companies have to getting you to point your face at their message, instead of Junk Mail, are far more intrusive.
Instead of paper in your mailbox, would you rather receive:
1. Telemarketing *shudder*
2. Robotic phone calls
3. Spam emails
3. Pop-up ads EVERYWHERE you go
Suddenly, a printed ad in your mailbox doesn't seem so intrusive, does it?
You could even move a bin just for Recycling Paper to a place very close to your mailbox. Easy in, easy OUT.
Isn't that easier than weeding through ALL THE SPAM in your inbox to get to your actual e-mail messages? I had to create a whole separate free email account for the companies that make you fill out a user profile, because you know that is just for spam. Now I have that extra task of looking through 877 emails just to find my latest Kohl's coupon code, if I can't find the holy grail mailed coupon that blessedly comes in via snail mail.
Next time you're filling out a survey and you're asked:
"How did you hear about us?"
Fill it/check the box marked:
Mayhaps blinking, popping up ads everywhere you look don't bother you, but for me?
I would rather get 80 billion pieces of printed junk mail, drawn, written, marketed, addressed, printed and distributed by paid HUMAN BEINGS than one robot:
- phone CALL on any phone
- spam message/email
- pop-up ad
Please spread the word and support humans, despite all of their annoying flaws.
I'm a Human Being and I approve this message.
