Ah, well, in my defence, mine goes straight in the recycling box outside
my front door!

There is an environmental issue involved in millions of people 'binning'
unwanted and unasked for mail everyday, of course. Perhaps on this basis
if
junk mail is considered to be a positive thing, then it should only be
sent
electronically, if this were possible!

I agree with Tim.  Junk mail seems to get such a bad name for no real
reason.  If you're not interested in the product, just bin it.  If you
are interested, it's served a good purpose by making you aware of it.

[mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Tim Trent

Subject: Re: [data-protection] Cold Calling

There are some not so subtle differences between TPS and FPS which
*must* be
obeyed and MPS which is really rather luke warm and has no teeth at all.

Even were MPS to be legally enforceable, there is nothing to prevent
anyone
from leafleting you (Kleeneze, Betterware, local politicos, Cats' home
etc).

Let me give you a different slant on "Junk Mail".

The direct marketing industry churns out thousands of pallet loads of
mail
daily.  That mail costs money and has some success in generating sales.
If
it were not cost effective people would not do it.  Potentially
generating
new sales keeps companies in business and/or leads to prices being kept
as
low as competitive on products and services.  But that is just "classic
marketing speak".

The real point is that I, Tim Trent, the Individual, absolutely adore
junk
mail, though I never read it unless it's very clever.  I adore it
because
the Royal Mail gets paid for delivery.  My postman is kept in a job
because
there is sufficient volume of stuff for him to deliver.  The cost of
postage
stays low because sufficient volume passes through the system.  Junk
mail
has a direct and very personal benefit for us all by keeping the cost of
postage down and ensuring doorstep delivery.  Without it we would call
Postman Pat plain "Pat".  And what would happen to his black and white
cat
then?

There is a service - called the Mail Preference Service.
There's also one for unsolicited faxes - called, spookily enough, the
Fax
Preference Service.

 And now all we need to add is an ability to stop the junk mail of
unaddressed leaflets delivered by the Post Office.
