How do I stop receiving texts messages to my phone? I do not recall signing up for them, and I can't find a way to opt out of them.

Thanks.

    Thanks for contacting us about text messages. We do not want to send texts to anyone who does not want to receive them. Our phone lists consist of numbers that people have supplied to us; giving us that contact information as part of signing a petition is optional.

    It’s fortunately very easy for you to take action to put an end to the text messages. Reply STOP to the message, and that will get your number off of our list. Please be aware, however, that there may be a lag of some hours, even a day, for that removal to be completed.

    That process works for the large majority of people. But some people can't text STOP at all, and there are a few other special conditions that make the STOP reply ineffective. If you can't reply STOP, or if your STOP reply is not taking effect after giving it one full day, please contact [email blocked] to ask for a manual block. You will need to include your phone number within that message.

    We appreciate your support of the mission of the site.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll give this a try next time I receive a text.

    Although I use texts very sparingly, I am a devoted Kosak. Keep up the
    great work.

    Stay safe and healthy.
