1.) Yes, I agree the financial force is from commercial, but the rule change would affect us and allow us to ship via USPS (not saying that's a better option, but it would be an option).
2.) "There's not enough money to be made from homebrewers for it to be a factor" - sounds like there wouldn't be much pull from that statement, even if we were involved. I know this has been an issue for a while and not just with USPS - just seems like the iron is hot, why not add some grease?
