SF trying to slow down yellow pages trash

San Francisco's attempt to cut down on littering and trashing the city has hit a legal roadblock: Yellow Pages ruling endangers SF ban. Notable for this comment by the industry guy trying to convince us that http://www.yellowpagesoptout.com works:

"We're trying to get phone books into the hands of people that want them and not to the people that don't," Norton said. "This decision isn't going to change any of that."

To which I can only say: "Hahahahahaha! Bullshit." We've signed up there, multiple times, we still get your trash in the front yard.

We've also called and emailed to stop "delivery" (throwing in our front yard) of the "free" advertiser supplement from the Press Democrat. It stopped for a few weeks.

Assholes. Time to start returning this trash to the advertisers who support it. By wrapping bricks in it.
