I remember in college trying to call the catalog companies to get them to stop sending me mountains of paper catalogs. It was futile. Most of them had no way of doing that, and even if you got off the list, you'd always find your way back on again two months later.
Catalog Choice (it's a .org) contacts catalog merchants on your behalf and gets them to stop sending you catalogs. For free.
Great idea, excellent implementation (very nice Ajax UI and great graphic design), and I'll let you know if it helps.

I’m Joel Spolsky, co-founder of Fog Creek Software, a New York company that proves that you can treat programmers well and still be highly profitable. Programmers get private offices, free lunch, and work 40 hours a week. Customers only pay for software if they’re delighted. We make Trello, which lets you organize anything, together, FogBugz, enlightened issue tracking software for bug tracking, and Kiln, which provides distributed version control and code reviews. I’m also the co-founder and CEO of Stack Exchange. More about me.
