Just interested: and it might be sheer coincidence. Since the national
postal strikes got announced, my Amazon sales have slowed up a bit. Anyone
else? EBay?

I've certainly avoided buying a few little things on eBay because I'm
not sure how long they'd take to arrive.

I bought a few books from Amazon Marketplace beginning of last week. Odd:
the two that were sent Royal Mail arrived pretty well normally. The third
was sent by one of these services where RM only fulfils delivery,
supposedly. It took over a week. I doubt it was RM holding it back, as
they'd surely want to favour their contracts and must have SLA penalties.
