What’s The Deal With Paper?

Wondering if anyone else has noticed this, especially people who have to run their mail through a scanner to read it like I do.

For at least the last few months, I’ve been finding that most of the folded paper I get in the mail won’t lie flat anymore. In order to get a decent scan, I have to hold it down with one or both hands. If I don’t, it puffs up as though it wants to stand and float away on a breeze that doesn’t exist, completely screwing up the output.

Nobody is folding anything any differently, so what gives? Has something changed about the chemical make-up of paper? Is it something to do with the recycling process? Is this only happening to me? It’s strange, whatever it is.
