Books Few Use

Yellow Pages Fading to Black

Yellow pages dumpster
Who uses the Yellow Pages anymore? Most go into the recycle bin, or even the trash, completely unused. Worse, there are several companies dumping them on doorsteps; I used to get 8 or 10 of them every year. Stopping them entailed contacting each publisher individually, and some made this difficult, or simply ignored the request.

Now you can opt out of receiving them altogether at one web site that (theoretically) stops them all. The site is new, and in response to a Seattle ordinance which the publishers are challenging in court.
