In late March of 2010, The Inlander published a story about the nagging nuisance of phone directories, and how citizens statewide were calling for the death of the dated technology. 

Phone book haters: Your wishes have been granted. The Spokesman-Review reports that Washington state lawmakers and phone book publishers have agreed to print opt-out information on the covers of their directories. But you don't have to wait for a phone book to arrive on your doorstep. Visit YellowPagesOptOut.com to opt out of receiving one.

According to reports, the fight isn't over. White Pages: You're next.
