Wow...Karen...I had no idea.
I have thrown away literally hundreds of these stupid AOL CD mailers - I feel sorry for the mail lady because I know she has a bin of them that everyone is getting in their mail-box. I wish I had known about this website a couple of years ago, lol.
I sent myself a link to the site - gonna set up a box tomorrow and also e-mail my friends. Thanks guys for bringing the matter up as well as giving us some practical solutions.
