Examiner Peninsuala, stop "free" SF Examiner paper
Original post made by Ebara on Jan 27, 2008
We call circulation, but can't get the paper to stop permanently.
This Examiner "junk" newspaper is a nuisance(in sharp contrast to the Almanac, which as useful real estate info and news of local interest to property owners - - And, the Almanac in my experience has been responsive to all customer service requests).
How can I get the Examiner to stop?

I have called the Examiner Circulation on at least 4 separate occasions and the delivery gets stopped for anywhere from 1 month to about 6 months. I wish I knew why they keep re-delivering despite my heated objections. The last time I told them I would take them to small claims court for littering if they didn't stop. It seems to have worked the best since its the longest that I haven't had their useless paper thrown in my driveway!

As it is a "free" paper, the Examiner survives solely on ad revenues and what they can charge is based on their circulation rate - how many papers are printed and delivered. Thus, good luck trying to get them to stop delivering!

I've had success stopping the Examiner Peninsula, but in another community (I work in downtown Menlo Park, and live on the peninsula). After calling Examiner customer service, ask to talk to a supervisor, and document everything in writing.
I've had several years without the paper. But it might depend on how responsible the contract distributor is.
