Ban the Phone Book wants us to have the opportunity to opt-in if we want to receive a phone book. This year three types of books were delivered to my residence. All three went into the recycling container, but not before a lot of grumbling about getting them in the first place. I saved the CD Rom from one of them, but doubt I'll ever use it, either.
