Special Delivery??? - Re: And still using DISCS IN THE POST

> Royal Mail Special Delivery is specifically mentioned as a permissible transmission channel for everything up to Top Secret.

Which isn't as Special as you might think.

I sent a delivery of custom-made items to a long-time customer whom I know and trust. A little while later he contacted me saying that he hadn't received the items.

Checking with Royal Mail, they said "well they were signed for and the GPS location was at his address, so as far as we're concerned, he's got them" despite the fact that a) he lives alone and b) it wasn't his signature, nor was anyone else there or authorised to sign for them.

Their response "we asked the Postman and he said he'd delivered them, so that's that, screw you, you're not getting any compensation..."
