Complimentary crap

This is a fax I sent to Torontische Stürmer (also known as T-Star, Torstar):

Thanks, but no thanks

Dear Sir/Madam,

Few days ago I found your newspaper (as you call it) on my porch. I took it (through plastic bag) and placed where it belongs: recycling box. I thought it was a honest mistake from your delivery person. However it continued and I investigated. Oh, it was not a mistake. It was a “complimentary delivery”.

What is this, kind of postal spam? I did not ask for it. I do not need this. And I neither want to take care of the garbage you put on my porch nor leave it here. So, please stop littering there!

Or I can decide to send you in return a full collection of my research papers or lectures by fax or email. With my “best compliments”.

My address is … BTW, some poor people you hired for this dirty job sometimes are calling me soliciting your newspaper. When I ask them not to call agail, they say “OK” but few month after someone else calls. Please, stop this as well. My phone …. Please, do not call.

Thank you in advance.
