I love San Francisco! :smileywink:

San Francisco Moves To Ban Yellow Pages

San Francisco is about to ban the delivery of yellow pages, unless residents ask for one. Advocates of the move say the restriction is good for the environment and that the Internet makes printed directories unnecessary for most people. Opponents say yellow page listings are important to businesses. Other cities have tried to curb the number of unwanted phone books with opt-out ordinances, but San Francisco's is the first opt-in only law.

I couldn't agree more. I hate when I see that yellow bag by my mailbox....and evidently my neighbors do too, because they always leave it sitting by the mailbox for weeks!

Yes, I do. For more than telephone numbers! They're great to press flowers in, make a good base to raise smaller children up to the table, torn up they can be good additions for paper making and etc.

I just wish I didn't get 8 telephone books a year!
