    I don't know of a general e-mail address to send to. Only ever found the 'contact form' on the site.

    sounds like fun, count me in for 5 letters as well. Why don't we post some examples of some letters later?

    You don't need to use your real name.

    Just so you can be prepared, in case your post office workers are control freaks like the ones at my local post office....

    Last yr I collected signatures for a petition and put it in a big envelope with a cover letter to the wts The workers refused to send the envelope without a return address and basically made a big stink out of it....problems with hate mail or something like that.

    I had to take it elsewhere to weigh it, go online to calculate postage, put the right amount of postage on it, and put it in the mailbox directly instead of handing it to a person at the counter. That was a pain in the neck.

    I've heard that "Beth Shan" of (insert address of your local kingkong hall) has been listed as the return address on a lot of mail to wts headquarters.

    I don't mind writing my real name and address, I keep a shot gun by my front door just in case they want to come over and go over anything about the end of the world with me, I can make the end of their world possible.

    How about this idea too, make of copy of each letter you are sending to the ORG, and send a copy to your local Newspaper Editor?

    I am sure they would shit their pants if the end of every letter they see;

    I'll do it, just need to know when. I agree with Seeker, they should be spread out.

    Good sources for names:

    1. Phone book but match different names with different fake addresses that are not even close, perhaps not even in the same city.

    2. Top baby names lists paired with top surname lists

    3. Pick up a few paperbacks from the library that have Dramatis Personae sections in the front and start using character names. If you use fantasy or sci fi try to make sure they make sense.

    4. Use inventive spellings on traditional names. Kaylee, Kaileigh, Kayleigh, Kailey, etc.

    5. Remember you can reuse common surnames with the same variations: Brown, Braun, Browne, etc.

    6. Random name generators on roleplaying sites. Just make sure they aren't too out there or written in elvish.

    For addresses check out how many digits address in certain areas are. It would not do to use 6 digit addresses in an area where 4 is the norm. When making up streets in large cities numbered streets 42nd street, 83rd avenue can be effective. In smaller areas names of trees oak, elm, maple works fairly well.
