OK, I haven't had any reason to complain about the ABA for a few weeks, so I was almost gleeful when I received my ABA member info form in the mail today. That's basically the form you fill out to tell them whether you want to receive mailed copy of the Lister's Report, the ABA Sales Catalog, etc etc.
Well, one of the questions is whether you want to alow the ABA to sell your name and address to other organizations. After each question, they list your default response from last year -- which, in my case, was a big, fat "NO" for this particular question. So, here's my question for all of the folks in Colorado Springs who read this blog: If I marked "no" to the question of whether or not I wanted the ABA to sell my name to other companies, why have I been receiving junk mail from companies that got my address from the ABA?
And oh yeah, still no explanation about why the ABA has been without a President for, what, at least five months? I mean, we're not talking about Exxon here, what's the deal?
