Reverend Richard J. Mackin (a/k/a Rich Mackin) creates zines as the "Consumer Defense Corporate Poet." Much of his work involves crank letters to corporations, usually with humorous and political undercurrents. His book Thank You For Your Continued Interest contains a selection of his letters and responses from corporations.

He is also known for the artistic, self-promotional cards that often accompany his zine.

Aside from his self-publishing, Mackin contributes to several zines, including Razorcake.

Mackin is known for his flamboyant personality and for dressing as a pirate. In the zine Baby I'm a Manarchist, two female writers accuse him of sexual assault. In his own zine Advice to Myself, Mackin responds to the allegations.
