no more AOL CDs

This is the best thing I have read in a long time. Everyone living in the United States (and it would appear even abroad) has heard of AOL. Everywhere you go there's an AOL CD sporting a new version and offering you free hours: your mailbox, your trashcan, your landlord ... you get the picture. Two guys from California have decided to "make it clear to AOL that a lot of people actually do not want their CDs" and never "asked for" them in the first place. To back this mixed call for protection of the environment and one's privacy, they have been collecting CDs from AOL, and their subsidiaries Compuserve and Netscape. Their target is a million CDs. They then plan to drag the whole bundle over to the company's doorstep and, in their own words: "We're going to AOL and say, 'You've got mail". {slashdot post} {cnn article} {Official page for the No More AOL CDs Campaign}
