Post-It Notes on Shabbos

Question:

May one put on or remove post-it notes [that are stuck on to paper] on Shabbat?

Answer:

Yes, they may be used as they are non permanent and clearly designed to come on and off. Hence there would be no problem of the melacha of sewing [tofer].

There are those who are stringent unless it will be taken off within a day.
