Personally, I'd be content to never receive another piece of junk mail for the rest my life, but who knows, maybe these people are onto something. Maybe there's more to junk mail than meets the eye.

I do number 7 - I send it back to them - and they pay the postage - some times it takes thrre or four times for them to get the message - but eventually it stops...I have not sent bricks yet though :)

Hey. Chris O has it right. For those short on time:
Here's what #7 says :
Many are inclined to view themselves as victims of junk mail, but some creative (and/or angry) types will take aggressive counter-action. These folks don't just demand their removal from direct mailing lists, but rather, they send direct mailers bricks (that right, bricks).
The Office of Strategic Influence Web site []
explains that direct mailers pay approximately 20 cents an ounce on their pre-paid postage.
An eight pound package, therefore, would end up costing them approximately $25. So if you don't mind paying a little extra for a larger envelope or shipping box, your revenge would be moderately significant.

I believe everyone is an artist in their own way! Great story! Some of this is just genius. Wonder where the picture artist gets all her junk mail. I get a bunch, but mostly it's white with black or colored print. Wonder if she needs more?

Oh, and a crosscut shredder makes the best mulch!
