Newspaper Spam

A few months ago, we started to get an unwanted weekly newspaper at no charge. In some areas it's even worse: How Can I Make The Newspaper Stop When I Don't Subscribe?

the Baltimore Sun has a nasty habit of delivering what they call "Sun Plus" to anyone who doesn't subscribe to the newspaper. Sun Plus comes in a standard newspaper bag and is essentially a single sheet of newsprint wrapped around a stack of ads and flyers. They deliver it on a seemingly random basis and not on any set schedule.

The sheet of newsprint does contain instructions for unsubscribing. We've lived in our house for six years and I've probably unsubscribed 15-20 times. I've tried both options listed - phone and email - to no avail.
