that's nonsense. i've ordered *plenty* of catalogs off the net. i ordered a
beer brewing catalog off the net. so i can get a beer making supply catalog
via email, but not a catalog for a child's toy? that's pretty screwy.
i don't see why lego couldn't just dump the information into the trash after
sending the catalog. clearly, they must be selling information to other
companies... that's b*llsh!t.
