  1. So, rather than just offer commercial base rate directly like they did before, they spent money to develop another website to advertise the services of other companies that get commercial base rate?

    Were they born this stupid or have they been taking lessons from Dr eBay?

  2. yea..lets base the discounts on consolidators who will just skim off the top. we already have that with ebay..amaxon..stamps etc and every single one doles out the duscounts arbitrarily and skim off the top

    usps SUCKS..just let us create a usps account and give us discounts directly
