I've just moved into a new apartment, and the previous residents were apparently single-handedly keeping the direct marketing world in business. Every day my mailbox is filled with catalogs. How can I most efficiently stop this onslaught? I live in Wisconsin (USA).

Will forwarding our mail twice in three months raise any red flags with anyone? How about three times in seven months? I also need some general help on mail management and state residency since we plan to be mobile next year (we live in an RV). [more inside]

I want to change the world. Or at least make it easier/faster/cheaper to send my niece and nephew, currently living less than 500 miles from where I live
, a flipping Christmas package. Who should I bother to help get this done? [more inside]

Looking at the Universal Postal Union pages
on the matter, addresses on envelopes are usually right-justified and appear below the stamp. Why is this the case. Also, are the UK and Ireland the only exceptions?

The Postal Service of a few different countries is a factor in where I decide to move. [more inside]

What's the most you can cost someone who sent you a prepaid business reply mail envelope? I just got one of these, fishing for a tax-deductible donation to a 501(c)(3) group, one I would pay money to see stomped to death.
I want to hear from people who've done this and suffered no repercussions, as well as any former or current USPS employees who might know where that fine line is. I'm also open to anything that keeps me on the mailing list, but still costs them more in postage than it's worth.
