Here's a fun way to get onto the no-call lists.  Especially effective if you have some spare time.

Recognizing and protecting your touchscreen
Introduction So, most people now have a touchscreen device of some form.  Smartphones, tablets, game controllers, portable gaming systems, and computer screens all seem to be wanting a touch.  With touching, though, you get fingerprints and scratches.  So, ...

Christian Meanderings
"As for Christ -- well, he has been most outrageously belied. His followers, like those of many scientists and literary men, have so garbled his words and conduct that many of them no longer apply to present life. Christ was a wonderful psychologist. He was...

Why I ended a 10-year relationship
About a month ago, I ended a decade-long relationship.  A relationship that I saw no reason to change a year before.  So, what happened?  They took a hard right while I wanted to keep going straight.  Six or seven months ago, I saw the first signs of troubl...

Here's the letter I posted.  Feel free to use and modify a copy if you wish to send your own letter.
----
I have been looking to create websites which I will use to show and share the photographs I take and the artwork I create and sell. If I cannot pay for users to have higher-speed access to download high-quality images, I will quickly lose business.
I have friends who are working to create online games which will be available for a low cost, but with limited and/or unreliable access to their site, these games will never get off the ground. Can you picture a world without Facebook or Google? If net neutrality had not existed when these sites and services were created, it is very likely that they would have been kept out by MySpace and HotBot or AltaVista.
By allowing the backbone providers and ISPs to prioritize traffic, you are allowing them to turn the internet into a series of toll roads. If you do this, do not be surprised if a new, uncontrolled and decentralized system comes in and eliminates this system that allows the government to crack down on large-scale piracy and other commonly agreed objectionable things such as child pornography.
Enforcing some user freedom and network neutrality at this point will prevent the "dark" networks from becoming major considerations in the near future, and will ensure a safer, cleaner experience for all involved.

So, annoyed with how the Hobby Lobby case went and interested in avoiding them now?  Here are 99 more organizations to consider avoiding.

Considering several of these are churches, I would take the suggestions with a grain of salt, at least.  I personally have no problem believing that an established church or religious non-profit should be allowed to argue that they need not cover services.  They are expressly created for the purpose of the related religion.  For-profit companies, though, are a different story in my opinion.  The former further the religion.  The latter are abusing the religion to avoid having to pay for things that other businesses must pay, while taking the difference as a profit.
