vacation and some shipping info.
Posted by Animal on March 12, 1997 at 17:18:23:
Somebody e-mailed this too me and I thought it might help any of you
decide how you might want things done during you vacation.
If you have already sent me the shipping and you decide to go regular then
e-mail me and I'll refund the fee or I can pick up something
extra. Your looking at 3-4 weeks by regular mail.
I also think there is a cc error in the maxigan line, as that should
be 50cc @ $140. Sorry about all the confusion but stuff happens.
And thanks to the guy that sent this.

>Animals' opinion. I agree with the volume of orders and such, however, I
don't think that customs isn't sitting on the mail line with a pocketfull of
search warrants ready to go whenever they get the urge. I don't think they
have to pull out a piece of mail and then go call a judge and say hey I have
this package......they do whatever they want. Just like when they kick
your f'in door down! After the door is DOWN they yell 'search warrant!' I won't use a certain disreputable nark
mail service, but I think if customs was opening up confidential
business mail they would have a whole bunch of lawsuits on their ass.
Just a thought as I won't be making anything on shipping. Discussion is open.
Anarchy in the USA!
