Am I the only one planning on NEVER using Fedex again?
Why on earth are you getting so excited? If you pack things properly it is all but impossible that you will everbe charged. Those who pack poorly, and who try to send poorly packed hazardous materials hurt all of the rest of us. I'm surprised the fine is only $350. Of course, if somebody sends a jar of murcury which spills and requires a $100,000 clean-up, or some sufff which leaks and kills people, they will be sued, and probably jailed for quite a while. Fed-Ex would not be bothering to do this if they were not having problems with bad people doing bad things.

Bah, small time stuff. Check out the 0A2/0A3 regulator tubes used in 1950s-60s ham radio gear. Now THAT is a nightmare.

I just took a radio to FedEx and asked the guy there about this and he had no idea what I was talking about. All he could surmise was that it's about something like toxic materials, etc.
