Do you think those flyers that people hand out on city sidewalks do any good?

sometimes, if both the hander-outer and the recipient care about the cause.

no, they are just annoying.

Depends on what types of flyers we are talking about here. If it's the religious ones, usually not. Flyers advertising a band or something, sometimes.

I doubt even 5% of the people that get them read them - most people only take them to be nice

no, i just drop them on the floor

I never take them. If I took every one I got offered on Yonge Street, I'd need a forklift to get to the office.

They are just trying to make a living to be fair guys! But they should co-ordinate their efforts, and there should be a regulation about how close they can be to eachother.

the only time one ever affected me was when it was for a fundraising concert...

In the words of the dearly departed Mitch Hedberg: "When somebody hands me a flyer on the street, it's like they're saying, 'here, you throw this away.'"

No, I want to punch the people who hand them out.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 5/1/05 - 12:04:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
i feel bad for them, so i take one and find the nearest trash can.

^ I find the furthest one so they don't see me throw it away

They keep street sweepers in a job. That's the only purpose to their lives.

I tend to tear them up as soon as I get handed them, especially the religious propaganda of my local Christian ministry.

I get a lot of "You're going to hell" stuff. Nasty.

So do I. I got given the Sinner's Prayer. What are you meant to say? Thank you?
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 5/5/05 - 2:42:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Even if it is an issue I actually care about, just the fact that someone bothered me makes me throw them away.

I have a hard time resisting the urge to slap the bastards who do this HARD. If you don't want it, don't take it. If you did take it, dispose of it properly.. arsehole...

I don't really think so, so many people just throw them out. I usually take them and read them, then I usually throw them out because I'm just not interested.
