I must have asked at least 10 timesover the last 2 years to stop delivery of this Sun Plus paper... it stopped for a while, but now they have started delivering it again. For the love of god, what does it take to stop this???

  • Hi Shawn,

    I'm so sorry you're having this problem. To stop SUNPlus, you can call 888-539-1280 or email SunPlusService@baltsun.com

    And feel free to email me directly at anne.lepore@baltsun.com if you start getting it again at any time in the future.

    I have attempted to stop this service, which I did not request, for the last 1 1/2 months. 4 phone calls later my plants are still bing chopped down by the throwing of this bundle. I have emailed SunPlus .
    I now consider this Destruction of property, littering and trespassing. I enjoy my landscaping and do not APPRECIATE the lack of RESPECT for my FLOWERs and Plants

    I have been battling this ridiculous junk newspaper that's nothing more than more trash in the neighborhood for 9 years now. I have the emails to prove my repeated requests. It will stop for awhile, then start again randomly. Clearly they know their process is broken because above Anne says....And feel free to email me directly at anne.lepore@baltsun.com if you start getting it again at any time in the future.

    So they know darn well that they can't even control this problem.

    WHY DO YOU THINK THE THIS IS THE HOMEOWNER'S PROBLEM, Anne? I never opted-in and have certainly opted-out more than 10 times.

    I have left a message for Mike Houser and will be handling this through the courts. Perhaps a monetary fine is what it will take to make this stop. I strongly encourage anyone with the same issues to contact me. Small claims court is easy to handle without legal advice. I have 3 No Soliciting signs posted as well as a Private Property/No Trespassing sign. There is no way the courts are going to side with Sunplus-- I bet the judge gets bombarded with their litter as well.

    I have already printed this page with Anne's admission that the service is likely to start again after one took the time to ask them to stop. I will also print the other numerous forums to show how little the staff respects homeowner's requests to stop soliciting and littering on their property.

    To whom it may concern (although by now I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this really doesn't concern anyone on your end):

    I have good news and bad news about your "Weekender" circular. The good news is that I am no longer going to throw them away as soon as I get them. The bad news is that I am now going to save them, and when I have collected a fair amount of them, I am going to drive down to North Calvert Street and dump them on your doorstep, so you can pay your labor to go out and pick up the little bags of soggy disgusting emulsified paper pulp.

    Seriously, why don't you just throw dirty Pampers on my front lawn, at least they make better fertilizer.

    I have made dozens of calls over the years to have them stopped, and yet they just keep coming. I've even let 4 or 5 copies pile up on the sidewalk and lawn, hoping that maybe the driver will get the hint and stop delivering them, but apparently they are just as oblivious to my disdain as is your staff.

    So since no one on your end seems to give a crap, here's what I going to do. I am also going to start calling the advertisers that pay you to tell them that no one actually wants their front lawns littered with these things, no one actually reads these rags, and that they would be far better off spending their marketing and advertising dollars elsewhere.

    Then I am going to tell them that I will be boycotting their products, services, or places of business until someone one your end gets it through their thick skull that I no longer want (never did actually) this rag delivered and I stop receiving them.

    As a side note, you know what I don't get...living here in the Great Peoples Republic of Maryland, where you cant swing a dead cat without hitting some pro-environment / anti-bigbusiness liberal, why do all these flaming tree-huggers give you a free pass ? Even if you only save the life of one tree by not printing and delivering your rag to my house, isn't it worth it for gods sake ?

    Anyhow, thanks for your time, have fun with your silly little obsolete printing presses while it lasts, and hope you enjoy the calls from your sponsors that I trust you will soon begin receiving,

  • Here is the guy I spoke with....

    I have contacted the Circulation Director of Home Delivery concerning the stoppage of the Sun Plus. His name is Mike Houser and his office number is 410-332-6551.

  • Lawrence:

    Enjoy your brief break while it lasts...they will resume delivery after skipping you for 2 to 4 weeks, then it's business as usual. This has been their pattern with me for years. Case in point, after the rant I made above (which was a copy of an e-mail that I had sent to the Sun), they only interrupted delivery for three weeks. I am now collecting them in a pile next to my garage door and do intend to drop them off at their facility as I had threatened to do in that e-mail.

    The delivery drivers are either mush headed zombies of the “Walking Dear” variety, or getting paid by the number of rags they deliver. If the former, one would have to question how they are able to drive (while Maryland is a sanctuary state and will give a drivers license to pretty much anyone, Zombies are actually one of the few special interest groups that they don’t cater to...probably has something to do with not having fully functional fingers, and in some cases no fingers at all, with which to vote with), and therefore must be the latter, where if they don’t deliver they don’t get paid.

    The key is the advertisers. The advertising space is sold, and its value based, upon the circulation, or the number of houses that it is delivered to, which, as I understand, is verified by an independent third party. By blowing off all of us, they keep their circulation up and maintain the amount they can charge for the advertising space. Keep in mind that we are just a miniscule fraction of the people that object to the delivery...most people don’t know about this site, they call or write to the Sun and get blown off just like us.

    The advertisers need to be directed to this web site and made to understand that there are a lot of pissed off recipients out there and that the circulation numbers are pure unadulterated grade A bullshit. When they stop buying advertising space, the rag goes away. It’s like they say: “follow the money”. I personally don’t have the time to call or e-mail all of the advertisers, as I’m sure none of you do either...and that’s what the Sun is banking on.

  • I have, in the past, written a form letter style email for the advertisers. This stopped papers for months and even resulted in some clown taking pictures of my house on a weekly basis to prove this garbage wasn't on my yard. It has started again, this time I will collect a few weeks worth and fill them with my dogs' fertilizer and send them back where they came from
