Postal Service offers New 'lifetime stamps'

The post office is planning a "forever" stamp for letters, good no matter how many times postal rates increase.

Sheets, rolls, books or loose stamps in the drawer would still be good. Forever.

Bad Service...It's not just an idea anymore...well...kinda

Howdy all,

I'm back and I finally got the hosting and domain issues resolved. Now, badservice.be exists, but it's far from complete. Badservice will primarily consist of two parts, a blog and a forums site. The blog posts will consist of links to news stories that pertain to the everyday consumer (such as class action lawsuits for defective products) and selected posts and complaints from the forums. Please bare in mind one thing: this is not the Better Business Bureau! The intent for this site is to inform others to watch out for screwy service...and to allow for this knowledge to become public and easily available. Also, I want to make this site open for the "wrong-do'ers," and allow them to rectify these situations.

Hope to see you all over there.
