There are two ways to do the opt out, you can opt out permanently or for two years. So, if you did the two-year route, it may have expired.

Or, they may be getting your name another way. I seem to be getting lots of offers these days from organizations I have associations with -- my union, groups I belong to like AAA, my undergraduate school, etc.

And I bought someone a present at Babies R Us the other day, or some such place, and now I'm on the list on new moms -- every day I get stuff in the mail, and phone calls, like, "Ma'am, do you want pictures of your new baby?" I'm like, "The five-year old?" It's freaky, and annoying, but I guess they're trying to do directed marketing. I get diaper coupons in the mail, but I guess it's better than the equally (or I guess even more so) inappropriate emails offering to supersize body parts I also don't have. :-)
