I signed up to National Geographic. Love the magazine but they flooded

many off-shoots of NG mag. Tons of stuff in the mail nearly every week.
I let it run out and sent them notice to take me OFF their mailing list.
Consumer Reports sent me 3 "IMPORTANT FINAL NOTICE" letters in a month. Trying to get me to re-subscribe but I'm ALREADY paid up till
I'm sure AARP will be just as bad as NG was.....
Regarding the "...other junk mail." I know what you're talking about here.
I subscribe to a few magazines and lately I started getting these inserts in them plus Email notices that I'm being offered a special re subscription rate if I renew right now or something similar.
It's getting to the point that I'm not sure when my actual subscription ends.
Plus one of my longtime favorites,Popular Mechanics,is getting overgrown with advertising and no longer has the real articles that got me to subscribe to it to begin with.
