Any of you guys ever hear of the trash, if you don't want it, trash it. Simple. Geez, to get yourself all worked up for some advertisments that you did not order is beyond me.

The model stuff really doesn't bother me.  If it keeps the magazines in business (and its a tough one) I'll live with it.

But sometimes the associations are....creative.  I bought fiberglass boat repair syringes to do my N resin casting from US Marine.  They sold my mailing list, apparently, to boat suppliers.  Now I'm getting 'free' boat classified publications - for BIG boats.  And they sold my mailing list too, I'm guessing, which is how I'm now receiving a classified ad publication for private aircraft. 

My wife says 'SO WHERE'S MY 40' YACHT?   WHERE'S THE LEARJET??'

So, when you get the Golfstream, you'll take me for a ride?
