Hop on the cluetrain.

To those companies who would use our mailboxes for their own non-consensual, non-consorcient marketing purposes, I have this reminder:

My mailbox. My property. My personal space. My rules. Deal with it.
I am not a target for your marketing. I am an individual and you will respect my privacy.
Thanks for the inspiration go to Chris Locke and Doc Searls, plus Dave Winer for pointing me at their clarity.

We are not seats or eyeballs or end users or consumers. We are human beings -- and our reach exceeds your grasp. DEAL WITH IT.

Young girl with SKU barcode on her forehead, thunderstorm in the background with text: I am not a pair of eyeballs to be captured or a consumer profile to be sold. I am an individual and you will respect my privacy. I am not a piece of your inventory. I will not be bartered, traded or sold. On the net I am in control.

To think we're based in Boulder but I've not yet met Chris Locke or Rick Levine. Have to fix that one of these days...
