The comments...

#6 is not "iffy." The difference between Kessler and a Nazi is so closely-nuanced that I decline to distinguish between him and an “actual” Nazi.

They would be smart to. WalMart basically invented modern supply chain management.

Is it overseas from Nigeria? If so, it might be mine... I'm still waiting for a special package from Nigeria... from Nigerian royalty, actually.

Mike,
What, walmart's going to steal Amazon's logistics now?

Doctor Jay,
E-bay hired my friend for Public Relations.
Amazon hired him for logistics.
You do the math.

Kolohe
+ Yeah, based on anecdata from stories of long time e-bay users they went from 'for-profit on line flea market' to 'amazon when amazon was still [. . .]

Oscar,
So too are Amazon's. It is why I won't order from them anymore, unless absolutely necessary.

Oscar Gordon

IIRC (perhaps it's gotten better since I last used E-Bay), their mechanisms for satisfying customers who have been defrauded were sorely lacking.

Oscar Gordon
+ I don’t think many people believe ecommerce can be put back in the box, even if they wish it could. There are lots of things [. . .]
Doctor Jay

I'm surprised that E-Bay isn't a force here.

How do you reinforce the compression axis? Bushings?
