The AJC stopped mailing our their advertising supplements about 3 years ago. It saved them a few cents to have them 'delivered' by the ACI firm and they go to 1,700,000 homes per WEEK in Metro Atlanta.
You get them whether you want it or not. They are tossed by ACI drivers onto your lawn, sidewalk or driveway. They are almost impossible to stop. One time I returned after several months at my condo and there were 13 in my driveway - a great invitation to burglars that no one is home!
The City has no interest in this issue. They don't even want to try. The AJC waves around high sounding BS like 'first amendment', 'free speech' etc and the City of Kennesaw puts its tail between its legs and hides under the bed.
So at least in Kennesaw, as it stands with this Council, homeowners have no rights to compel any news organization to STOP throwing unwanted crap onto your property.
The AJC has been a paid up member of the BBB since 1954 and have an A+ rating, which is totally undeserved, but the BBB has recently started putting the complaints online so you can see what people complain about, the first of the complaints about this issue is now up and I am sure there will be many more coming. Go to their site to see it or just look at mine to read it and find the BBB link: http://atlantajournal-constitution.blogspot.com/
