Opting Out of Credit Card Offers

Maybe a coup de grace for my junk mail? I've already killed most of my junk mail thanks to the USPS and the Direct Marketing Association. Now, from a post at Lifehacker, the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires the credit reporting agencies to provide people the opportunity to opt-out of receiving pre-approved credit card applications (or you can opt-in, but what dufus would want to do that??). Anyway, provides the mechanism for opting out. Pretty cool, and nice to see a piece of legislation being directly useful.
