That's interesting about the verification thing, because it was my understanding that virtually everybody taps into the database maintained by the PO themselves... UPS, FedEx, and even the map sites. And that is also one flaw that still exists with the PO's actual site, is that there is no way to force an address. It will just tell you something is wrong, but it won't tell you WHAT is wrong. Which is sort of ridiculous. So yes, they still are not perfect. I had an int. package disappear for over two months. It showed up at my door the other day out of the blue in new packaging, and said it was from the 'recovery department' or something like that. The air sticker had Atlanta as the starting point. So I have no idea what happened, or if it even made it out of the country. I called and asked if I could get a refund and they of course said no, because it was just priority. If any other business took your money and didn't do what you paid them to do, that would be considered fraud. But apparently not with the PO. :-) But oh well... I still don't get that... 'We're trying to F you' feeling with them, that I do with the private companies. UPS use to be much more honest and operated very much like the PO years ago. But not anymore. Just another greedy corp'
