They all leak IP addresses to the internet as well. It looks like they only leak MAC addresses to the local network, so they've done a little better there.
In fact, it's waaaay better than the thermal printed receipts most places generate now. Those seem to fade out in well less than a year, and often closer to 3-4 months, unless it gets left in your hot car for a day, then the whole thing turns black.

The US govt is mandated by the constitution to manage a set of post offices and local mail delivery. There is a way to change that setup, it's called "pass an amendment to the constitution". I'm not advocating for spam, I'm just trying to point out how the system works. The way the system is setup, anyone who wants to pay, can send any legal item to whoever they want.
So, I should manage my personal affairs the way you say? How about, I'll do it my way, you do it your way.

The sooner Congress gets rid of them the better.
I don't think it will work that way. See Article I, Section 8, Clause 7 of the United States Constitution, known as the Postal Clause or the Postal Power.
