they can deny it all they want

stick their fingers in their ears a scream LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA when someone says it.
but it doesn't change the fact we've all heard of Google and aren't afraid to use it on our network aware smart phones.
Yellow book needs to adapt and adjust because this is a dead end.
A pile of books outside a dorm that's been empty for nine months, and will be empty for nine more due to renovations is a losing proposition.

CincyBell phone books

This happens every year downtown also, a pile of unrequested phone books show up, one or two disappear while the rest swell from moisture, unusable, until someone, the city? the management? hauls them away.[where: 45202]

  1. I've always wondered how this was not citable littering.

  2. The same thing occurs on my front porch unless they happen to be delivered around the time we have a bonfire. What a waste.

  3. I just found this site: http://YellowPagesGoesGreen.Org which "is aimed at starting a national movement to solicite White/Yellow pages to proactively stop the delivery of the books...". I just signed up. Maybe it's spam. Maybe it's real. I figure it's worth a shot!

  4. There will still be plenty of people that want the books but I think at this point it should be an opt-in system. When I get mine they go straight to the recycling bin.


  5. I just counted no less than seven Cincinnati yellow page/phone books in my apartment this weekend.

    I was mildly enraged when thinking about the waste of paper, effort and utilities used to make all those phone books, which have been made obsolete by my smartphone.

    I think we should all plan a movement like THIS guy (this is one of my favorite YouTube videos EVER).

  6. HAve you ever tried to use Cincinnati Bell's Yellow Pages Online ( )? It's a complete joke. The site looks like its straight out of 1998. I'm guessing that Cinti Bell gave up on this site years ago.
