I’ve just got five bits of junk mail throught the post, this may not sound strange as most people get this amount on a regular basis. Why I get anoyed is that I have been signed up to the mail prefrence service for about six months. I also have signed the Royal mail’s opting out service which means no one at the address will receive an unaddressed mail item, apparently.
The other reason that this junk mail anoys me is that living on a council estate all our junk mail is loans, “borrow even more because we have you all trapped now!” The average person in my area is on a low wage and probably struggles at some point money wise. The constant stream of offers for a simple way out must be hard to ignore. This is not just a nuisance it’s bullying when you are already in a corner.
Ethical mail is what I want not just individuals ‘opting out’, even that makes it sound as if you are missing out on something. I don’t think that there is any place for advertisement through the post.
