greendimes - powered by AppFuse

greendimes greendimes is a company that helps you to stop receiving junk mail. From their web site:

There are dozens of companies that sell your name to make a buck (actually, lots of bucks). We'll make sure you're taken off their mailing lists. How?

Well, we'll call, email and write these companies to make sure they leave you alone! This isn't easy. These companies change their policies and their contact info often. And even if you do go through the effort of validating every company's policies and contact info and write to each one, you could still get junk mail from them. Why?

Because when you move, donate money to charity, buy something from a catalog or do one of a hundred other seemingly innocent things, your name gets sold! That's why we're a recurring service -- we're going to contact these companies on your behalf a LOT, just to make sure you're kept off of these lists and people stop selling your name and address.

We keep you off.
Just because you're off doesn't mean you stay off. Just about anything you do -- refinance, move, get a new credit card, etc. -- puts you back on. So, we will regularly request your information be removed from existing lists and we add new junk mailers to our list regularly.

Sounds like a pretty cool service to me.

How do I know it's powered by AppFuse? Because they're still using the AppFuse favicon, and because I recently saw they're hiring a Senior Software Engineer with AppFuse experience listed as a bonus.

Hi DavidC, Thanks so much for blogging about GreenDimes. I thought you might want to know we have relaunched the site with even more ways to get off catalogs lists and decide where you want your trees planted. And from Feb 22-March 22, new members get 25 bonus trees, and members get 25 trees too if they refer a friend who joins. There is a tab for inviting friends in My Account section of GreenDimes which includes a link you can give your friends. Thanks for letting the AppFuse community know about GreenDimes. Cheers, Jill at GreenDimes

Jill - it looks like GreenDimes is no longer powered by AppFuse. From what I can tell, you've switched to PHP. Are you using a particular PHP framework or CMS system or did you write everything by hand?
