I got my envelope with the MS newsletter in it the other day, but am wondering about the packaging. As I understood it when I asked about it a couple of months ago, the newsletter is supposed to be mailed out in an envelope that makes the contents undistinquishable. However, in the upper left corner was a return address of "Male Survivor". Granted, most people probably don't know what that means, but I'm sure some could guess. Luckily, I was the first to the mailbox that day and got it instead of my 14 and 9 year old daughters so I didn't have to explain what Daddy got in the mail. Was this a fluke, or will future mailings come similarly packaged? Not mad, just want to know what to expect.

Thanks,

Eddie,

Now I am worried...

I just payed my menbership last night - was told by a couple of people here that any mailings would be totaly undistinguishable

I have friends in the post office who have in the past questioned mail that I have recieved (gossip travels like wildfire in this small community) - I hate to even think of what kind of rumors are going to be started about me when they read the words 'Male Survivor' in the return address - guess I'll just have to deal with it when the rummors start...

I am glad that you got the mail in first that day - kids sure can be full of questions sometimes...

Glad that you posted this so as at least I have a heads up of what to expect...

I don't want to hide - I just don't want 100 stupid rumors floating around either...

We are aware of this and have corrected it. In the future there will not be any identifying information on our mailings. Our pollicy hasn't changed.
