Drowning in Junk Mail – How to Opt-out of Junk Mail from Response Unlimited

You don’t know the name Response Unlimited. You aren’t supposed to. They are a direct marketing firm. Contact them here:  Opt out here. Under “I am interested in…” in the pull down menu pick “mailing lists” or call (540) 943-6721.

This week alone I have gotten 6 mail pieces from them. They have a distinct style, that is is both plain and bold at the same time. Large bold print that is easy for the elderly to read. Bizarre click-bait (open-bait?) headlines that command you to open the mail piece to find out what is going on. All are the hallmarks of this company’s style.
Here is a 2006 Southern Poverty Law Center report about the people who run and use RU. Here is the 2005 New York Times piece about the parents of Terri Schiavo, mentioned by the SPLC.

You can use their search engine to look up your mail and find out if your junk mail  is managed by of their many lists.

Look and see if the list is “Managed by Response Unlimited”.  Then you know for sure you need to ask them to be put on their “suppression list”. Look up all your mail and tell them which of their clients are sending you stuff.

One of their clients is Western Center for Journalism. Wiki page. Source Watch page. Which is run by wait for it… Floyd Brown. If you have been reading the the blog from the start, it seems that this entire project is trying to stop junk mail from one man, Floyd Brown.

Other groups that use Response Unlimited as their direct marketing firm are:

Larry Klaymen's Freedom Watch
Larry Klaymen's Freedom Watch
Freedom Watch, AAaaa Auto play music!!! Run by Larry Klayman. Wiki page. RU page.

    • You can contact them on this page. Remember we are not using these forms the way they were intended. Tell them your name and address and ask to be taken off their mailing lists. If you can, tell them all the clients you get mail from. But ask to be put on the suppression list for everything.


      • It doesn’t matter that you didn’t mention the suppression list. It is an industry term that I only use when direct marketing firms start to give me lip about what I want them to do. Or they give me BS about how I should contact the DMA. RU was one of the nicer firms to deal with.


  1. First I want to thank you for documenting all your efforts on this blog – it has helped me and so many others to assist our loved ones with this problem. I wanted to share something ironic with you, though: I followed your directions with RU, and heard back very quickly from them. Although the mail from most of their clients has slowed down or stopped, we are now getting THEIR promotional material in the mail! I think we have gotten 3 postcards in the past 4 months trying to get us to use their services.
